Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Testimonials

"I have really enjoyed the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program because the instructors say what they believe, mean what they say and encourage students to dream big. I consider ENTR 20000 and 31000 instructors my best contacts when it comes to asking business questions or just to bounce off new ideas."

"In just 10 months after graduating and completing the program, I starting working for a company where I've been able to pitch improvement ideas to the president, work on inbound marketing with the marketing department, and give weekly updates on my project's status to the project's investors, while working on a team that I help coordinate."

"Purdue’s Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is extremely beneficial to the entire student body.  Having the opportunity to participate in the program, while also pursuing a degree in my field of interest, played a huge role in my decision to attend Purdue. The ENTR program allows students to have the best of both worlds; getting to learn about starting your own business while simultaneously earning your degree in your specific field."

"Dave and I were talking one day, and he thought it would be a great idea to start a business that involved an everyday customer product and aid a mission.
