The Entrepreneurship Career Pathways Certificate is an exciting new program that will help you start and effectively operate your own small business.

The program builds skills in many areas critical to the success of a small business owner, such as written and verbal communication, marketing, business law, accounting, financial management, and small business development. Many aspects of starting and running a small business are encompassed in the certificate - from initial evaluation of a business idea and developing a business plan, to managing the small business and record keeping.

Program Requirements

The Entrepreneurship Pathways Certificate takes less than one-year and has the flexibility to meet your individual needs. Almost a third of the required curriculum is electives, which means you can chose from an entrepreneur’s dream list of subjects, including international business, web page design, communicating with employees, and technical report writing.

Students entering the program are expected to have basic keyboarding and computer skills with business application software such as Word and Excel. If you do not have these basic skills, you should take Introduction to Computer Information Systems (CIS 120) during your first term at UCC.

Placement scores indicating MTH 020 or higher and WR 115 or higher are required for entry into the program.
