For the serious self-starter, there is absolutely no better place than the University of Georgia. The UGA Entrepreneurship Program, housed in the Terry College of Business, provides a unique and comprehensive academic program that encompasses experiential learning and equips students with the tools and resources to pursue their own start-up venture.
We strive to infuse and refine an entrepreneurial mindset in our students through transformational experiences and comprehensive academic courses.
Three Pillars of the Entrepreneurship Program
- Economic Development
The Certificate program is the academic keystone for the newly launched program. The University-wide certificate in Entrepreneurship launched in the Spring of 2016. For the first time students from any College within the University can apply to be a part of the program to receive the Entrepreneurship Certificate. With a total of 15-hours of coursework, the certificate is targeted to any student who is interested in becoming an entrepreneur.
The Entrepreneurship Program serves students by providing students with "hands-on" opportunities in Entrepreneurship as well as University-wide resources for on-campus startups.
The Entrepreneurship Program also aims to provide resources for the University community including students, faculty, alumni and friends that lead to the launching of successful business ventures.
