Purdue's Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program offers the opportunity for Purdue undergraduate students in all disciplines to earn an academic credential in entrepreneurship complementary to their major. Our philosophy is that entrepreneurship education is comprised of inspiration, education, and application and the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program delivers all three. Students receive inspiration from a team of faculty who are successful, practicing entrepreneurs and who are passionate about teaching and mentoring students. Students learn about entrepreneurship through robust curriculum that exposes them to the knowledge, as well as the leadership and communication skills that individuals need to be successful entrepreneurs. They apply their knowledge through experiential learning activities and a rich ecosystem of experts and business incubation resources.
By the time students earn their entrepreneurship certificate, they will have developed the confidence to succeed in business on their own terms.
