Programs can appeal to students in all seven UD colleges
Horn Entrepreneurship has launched seven new undergraduate certificates created in partnership with each of the seven colleges at the University of Delaware. The certificate programs will allow students to engage with the university’s inclusive entrepreneurship community.
The undergraduate certificates are designed with a flexible choice of courses to allow for maximum benefit to any undergraduate major or minor. The certificates vary slightly from nine to 10 credits each and the certificate faculty director will act as an advisor in each of the colleges. Some certificates will align with minors for maximum benefit. Every certificate is available to any undergraduate student regardless of their assigned college. Entrepreneurial education is a process of understanding your interests, to find value in helping others or to solve a problem. Entrepreneurial thinking is advantageous in today’s rapidly changing work environment.
The seven certificates all share a small component of entrepreneurial–focused classes and includes a practicum in the area of interest. More about each of the specific requirements can be viewed on the website for Horn Entrepreneurship.
