    What Can I Do With a Certificate in Entrepreneurship?

    As an entrepreneur, you create your own opportunities. Entrepreneurs are an integral part of the business world and can find opportunities at every level. Some entrepreneurs aim to start their own businesses, while others might help expand a start-up. Many entrepreneurs also find roles in established businesses, where they can bring fresh ideas into a corporate culture.

    Drexel’s entrepreneurship certificate program specifically prepares you to drive innovation both in established companies and in start-up environments. You’ll also focus on building internal and external relations to help grow your business.
