The name of our college, The H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship, says it all! H. Wayne Huizenga was one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs. In fact, our country is built on the vision, motivation, and performance of entrepreneurs. An entrepreneurship certificate will give you the core knowledge necessary to realize your entrepreneurial vision. You will cover entrepreneurship and law, venture creation, entrepreneurship finance, entrepreneurship management, and international trade for entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurship certificate will empower you to create your own business that can grow to whatever you want it to be!

Certificate courses may not be taken while completing graduate degree courses. Students may apply appropriate certificate courses toward the completion of a master's degree if financial aid was not used to help pay tuition and other fees; and if the certificate courses are transferred before completion of the certificate. Students cannot transfer certificate courses toward a Master's Degree after the awarding of the certificate. Consult the Course Catalog for details.
