Entrepreneurship Certificate

 A 12-semester-hour entrepreneurship certificate is included in the CCC Business Administration program. You can complete the certificate as an area of specialization within the program or as a stand-alone certificate to develop entrepreneurial skills and develop a business plan.

12-semester-hour certificate

A nine-semester-hour endorsement also is offered to provide basic entrepreneurship skills. Students in any CCC program who want to open their own business in the future can complete the certificate as part of their associate of applied science degree or diploma. Entrepreneurs can complete the three courses as a stand-alone certificate.
