About the Program

When someone makes an awesome discovery in a lab, they want to turn that into a business. And you can be the one who makes that happen. This certificate program can give you the foundation of entrepreneurship and technology commercialization you need to make money off an invention or discovery..

We'll start you off with courses such as Technology-Based Venture Planning, From Idea to IPO, and Leading Innovation. Then, you can choose either a directed study course or practicum in commercialization. Finally, we emphasize experiential learning, and we're going to encourage you to use your own intellectual property. To complete the program, you must complete 12 credit hours, but they can be completed in any order. Typically, this program can be finished in less than one year, and it's an excellent addition to your MBA or any of our graduate programs.
