Graduate Certificates in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The Naveen Jindal School of Management (JSOM) offers two graduate certificates in Innovation and Entrepreneurship to students wishing to complement their skills in a technical or functional discipline with the management skills necessary for leadership roles in product, service or business model innovation in a startup or an established organization:
- Graduate Certificate in New Venture Entrepreneurship
- Graduate Certificate in Corporate Entrepreneurship
Degree-Seeking Students – Students Who Want to Pursue Both a Graduate Business Degree in JSOM and a Certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship:
Students already enrolled in a graduate degree program in JSOM are automatically eligible for enrolling in these certificate programs and may begin taking required courses immediately via normal course registration procedures. Students should notify the program director regarding their desire to receive a certificate (see contact information below). As the student completes the final required course, a follow-up notification should be sent that includes the courses completed and the grades received in each course.
Non-Degree-Seeking Students – Students Who Only Want to Pursue a Certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship:
Non-degree seeking students must contact the director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship programs in advance and provide a copy of their resume showing prior academic and professional employment and a narrative of why they are interested in pursuing a certificate.
Once approved by the program director, non-degree-seeking applicants will need to complete an online application and be accepted as a non-degree-seeking student. Once admitted, the student should notify the program director and may enroll in courses, provided they meet the course prerequisites, if any.
