The Certificate in Entrepreneurship program is open to all students from all majors at Washburn University. It is designed for the student who seeks to be an entrepreneur in a start-up venture, operate a family business, or work as an entrepreneurial change agent within a corporate setting.
Students should seek advising from the School of Business office or from the program advisor and should notify the School of Business office during the semester in which the requirements for the certificate will be met. The awarding of the Certificate in Entrepreneurship is independent of the graduation date of degree-seeking students. Note: Due to Federal regulations, students completing the certificate independently from a Washburn degree program will not be able to receive federal financial aid for the certificate program.
The certificate program requires four three-credit-hour courses. A grade of C or better must be earned in each course used to satisfy the requirements of the certificate.
