Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Approved Certificate Program and Purdue Study Abroad Programs


Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Today, entrepreneurs working in high-growth, technology-based industries must be fluent in global business issues, including intellectual property, global markets, sourcing and supply chains, intercultural management, and communication. International experiences also can benefit entrepreneurs who plan to serve the U.S. market primarily; the increasing diversity of the U.S. population requires cross-cultural expertise in the development and marketing of new products and services for the domestic market.

Each year, our Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation study-abroad opportunity educates participants on entrepreneurship, innovation, and product development in foreign markets for new products and services. Participants interact with students and faculty from prestigious educational institutions and also visit companies and business-related government organizations. The experience fulfills one 3-credit "option" or "capstone" course requirement for the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program. It is preceded by several pre-departure seminars. The program is limited to approximately 20 students.
