The Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is composed of a series of courses in which students learn how to be more innovative and entrepreneurial in their thinking. In this graduate certificate, students will gain knowledge and tools to put their ideas from their own programs of study into action. The entrepreneurial mindset that can enable innovative action, as well as the knowledge and skills that support these, is valuable to graduates who want to create a new venture, work for a technology or other startup, work in a large existing firm as a corporate entrepreneur, or to simply understand how to better create value in novel ways at whatever organization they are employed.
