You’re looking to grow your success as an entrepreneur, but to do so you need to broaden your skillset. Gain a competitive advantage at one of the few schools in the country with Entrepreneurship in its name – the H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship.

The Entrepreneurship certificate provides you with the core knowledge you need to realize your entrepreneurial vision.

The Entrepreneurship certificate will empower you to create your own business, acquire an existing business or run a division of a large corporation, so you can become the leader you’ve envisioned yourself to be.
