Entrepreneurship Certificate

Entrepreneurship includes the ability to create and recognize compelling opportunities, assume risk, and attract the resources to transform opportunities into value. Creativity, the development of novel and useful ideas, processes, or procedures by an individual or teams working together can lead to successful implementation of a new idea or innovation.

The Entrepreneurship Certificate combines courses in several of the functional areas of business to create in-depth knowledge of entrepreneurship, whether within a start up or in a large organization (intrapreneurship). The certificate is available to both business administration and all other majors at Georgia Tech.


The certificate covers knowledge and skills surrounding the entrepreneurial process including opportunity recognition, concept development, business plans, resource acquisition, and value creation. To earn a certificate, you must earn a "C" or better in each course.
