The certificate requires an in-depth course of study examining the theories of innovation and entrepreneurship, coupled with hands-on practice in both areas.

The certificate builds on the already-existing emphasis of knowledge in service of society that is taking place within the students’ majors and co-curricular activities, to further enhance students’ abilities to explore the complex problems being faced by our world and to develop innovative methods to address those problems.
