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
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.
Fifteen hours of approved coursework is required to complete the certificate. Courses must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or higher. Elective hours can be applied towards both the certificate and graduation requirements as appropriate for each major/minor. Application and acceptance to the program is also required.
