The Certificate in Entrepreneurship is an eight-course program that introduces students to the fundamentals of business and the art of entrepreneurial thinking. Entrepreneurship is more than just starting or running your own business; the skills gained in this certificate will empower graduates to be innovative thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and to emerge as leaders within a team. Students who complete the Certificate in Entrepreneurship will: understand basic business principles; be effective contributors to team performance; be able to incorporate ethical considerations into decision making and intended actions; be entrepreneurial thinkers; and prepare a business plan for a new venture.

All eight of the courses in this program are fully transferrable to the Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Saskatchewan.

Students can pursue this program as a stand-alone option or in conjunction with another degree. The program can be completed full-time in as little as ten months or part-time. Students completing the program alongside another degree should consult with an advisor in their home college to understand how the courses fit within their program requirements. Upon first admission to the Certificate in Entrepreneurship program students must complete requirements within a ten (10) year time period. Under exceptional circumstances, the School may grant an extension. Students returning to the Certificate in Entrepreneurship program after an absence of five (5) or more years may be placed under the curriculum requirements in effect on the date of readmission.
