The Entrepreneurial Certificate Program is a prudent investment and is recommended for anyone considering starting, buying or growing their own business. The program is comprised of two certificate tracks. Courses promote entrepreneurial thinking among students and develop relevant skills for founding and growing a small business venture. Students will have the opportunity to apply these skills by managing and operating a retail facility. Students will learn how to apply for financing, practice inventory planning, discuss employee management, and learn current customer service practices through Red Carpet Customer Service. Each student will develop and implement their entrepreneurial concept.
Students in any program are subject to Blue Ridge Community and Technical College’s requirements for admission, basic skills testing, and appropriate course placement, including mandated developmental courses, which are not counted toward the completion of the program. Blue Ridge CTC requirements regarding academic standards and student conduct also apply.
