Advanced Track Certificate Program
Students applying for the Advanced Program track will be carefully screened to ensure they have the passion, essential skills, and a clear idea of the business venture they want to pursue. Because of the nature of the program, it is essential that prospective student-entrepreneurs have a strong desire to succeed and scale existing businesses and a commitment to employ others in our surrounding communities. The program, in turn provides the necessary tool-kit and access to capital and other requisite resources for students to be effective in their respective venture.
