U of U Offering Entrepreneurship Certificate to All Majors

Press Release

November 6, 2013

Salt Lake City — The David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah has begun offering an interdisciplinary certificate in entrepreneurship for undergraduate students that is available to every undergraduate in the university, regardless of major.

“Entrepreneurship is more popular than ever, and this certificate allows more students to learn the fundamentals from experts,” said Bill Schulze, academic director of entrepreneurship programs and a professor of strategy at the school of business.

The school already offers undergraduate and graduate degrees with an emphasis in entrepreneurship, but this is the first time the school has opened to students from any major.

Business school faculty created the certificate to address changing trends in the economy and education. There is a growing demand for the skills needed to start a company, launch a new product or test an idea, and companies increasingly seek students who have practical business skills in addition to industry expertise.

Enrollment for the course begins this month, and the first classes will be taught in spring 2014. Completion of the certificate requires six courses, including four at the David Eccles School of Business and two electives in another department. Business classes include: Entrepreneurship and Society, Entrepreneurial Marketing, Entrepreneurial Finance and Venture Discover.

In addition to the certificate, the David Eccles School of Business provides many other ways for students across campus to get involved with entrepreneurship through the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, which provides competitions, programs and networking opportunities for student innovators.
