Entrepreneurship Certificate Program

What are the keys to success?

Is there a formula that makes one idea a triumph and another a failure?

The Washburn Entrepreneurship Program takes a proactive approach in the exploration of innovative ideas and in examining managerial frameworks used by various pioneers of business. The program focuses on showing exactly what having a vision means and how to go about building practical applications to make dreams become realities.

The Entrepreneurship Certificate can be valuable for any student on campus. It is designed for the student who seeks to be an entrepreneur in start-up ventures, operate a family business or work as an entrepreneurial change agent within a corporate setting. Companies want to hire graduates with initiative and who show entrepreneurial characteristics. Students who display entrepreneurial attributes will add more value to their companies, eventually start their own business, and make a big contribution to the overall economy.
