Leadership and Entrepreneurship Program Description
The Upper Division Certificate in Leadership and Entrepreneurship is designed for students who have a particular interest in entrepreneurship; two additional courses in entrepreneurship will be offered that build upon three existing leadership courses. The proposed certificate will take a new approach to the concept of entrepreneurship that goes beyond what traditionally has been equated with owning one’s own independent pharmacy. Although the courses will provide students with the knowledge to pursue that goal, this new concept goes beyond this, and considers that individuals, throughout their careers, will be engaged in launching new enterprises, and initiatives within health systems and other organizations.
