The certificate is a valuable standalone credential but also meant to be a helpful stepping stone. If you later choose to apply for a D’Amore-McKim master’s program, such as the Part-Time MBA, your graduate certificate can give you a head start.
A Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship is a fast, cost-effective way to gain business skills and bolster your résumé—without the financial or time commitment of enrolling in a full master’s program.
Full-time or part-time
There are three entry terms each year in January, May, and September
12-15 credits. The minimum required number of credits to earn your certificate is 12, however many students select to take an additional elective in order to broaden their expertise.
Courses are primarily offered Monday–Thursday during the evening. Students may take one course online. International students must complete all of their classes on campus.
Time to Complete
May be completed over the course of just two semesters, or spread out over as long as three years for campus-based students or over two years for online students. The length of the program will depend on your course selections.
