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 MS in Technological Entrepreneurship or the Part-Time MBA, your graduate certificate can give you a head start.

A Graduate Certificate in Technological 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.
