The Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship is designed for professionals with college degrees or current graduate students interested in corporate venturing or developing a freestanding start-up.
One of the biggest questions a first-time entrepreneur has to answer is whether to jump feet-first into the market with a start-up or to get a business education first. D’Amore-McKim’s Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship offers an excellent middle path. It provides you with a 4-course, 12-credit “business boot camp” (5-course, 15-credits for International students) that will help you start your new venture off on the right foot but still get you to market fast.
Learn how our teaching and research benefit from a worldwide network of students, faculty and industry partners.
