Your dreams. Our certificates. Your success.

Gain an integrative perspective to start your own venture with the Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship.

Are you interested in corporate venturing or developing a freestanding start-up? This specialized program will help you build the foundational business knowledge required to commercialize theories you have or products you are developing—leveraging both our highly acclaimed business and engineering schools to bring your innovative ideas to the next level. Through this program, you will take five classes to assist you in developing your career knowledge and potential.

Just-in-Time Learning. The Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship is designed to give you training that you can use immediately. At D’Amore-McKim School of Business, you won’t find theoretical training for a theoretical future—you’ll have the opportunity to gain practical, real-world knowledge rooted in the realities of working life.

Shape your own experience. When you pursue a Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship, you will take two required courses and then may select elective courses that will provide you with a unique learning experience to fit your exact needs.

Study on your own terms. The Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship has been designed for both full-time and working professionals alike. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays. You may even take one of our courses online. You can choose to come to campus just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester.

Start your Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship at a time that works for you. You can enter the program in January, May, or September.

Build toward something more. The Graduate Certificate in Technological Entrepreneurship is a unique opportunity to quickly gain fundamental business knowledge and earn a graduate-level credential from a top 40 U.S. Research University, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. Our entrepreneurship program is ranked #9 by The Princeton Review. And that’s just the beginning.

When you are ready to pursue a full graduate degree at Northeastern University—now or in the future—the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible master’s programs, including our MS in Technological Entrepreneurship or our Part-Time MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
