Undergraduate students at UNC Charlotte will be able to match their entrepreneurial spirit with a new certificate designed to give them the skills to turn ideas into action.
In August, the Belk College of Business will introduce an Undergraduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship.
“Regardless of discipline, professionals who have the skill sets related to entrepreneurship are in high demand,” said Justin Webb, Belk Distinguished Professor of Business Innovation. “This new certificate aims to provide students across UNC Charlotte with entrepreneurial competencies to support their entrepreneurial thinking and action.”
A 2021 analysis from LendingTree, ranked Charlotte and Raleigh markets both in the top five metros to start a business.
The new certificate aims to provide the talent to support this growing area of the state’s economy, said Webb, who helped develop the program.
Three new courses are being introduced as part of the program:
- Recognizing Entrepreneurial Opportunities (ENTR 3276)
- Experiential Entrepreneurship (ENTR 3278)
- Entrepreneurial Action and Organizing (ENTR 3279)
