Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship

Have business experience but want your own? Try a Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship certificate.

Assemble a portfolio of skills to become your own boss.

A Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship certificate will help you develop a comprehensive toolkit for operating your own business. Essential topics include: accounting, marketing, office technology, entrepreneurship, and management skills. You’ll graduate with key managerial and leadership skills, and the ability to identify and solve complex business problems. So you have the hands on experience to build a successful small business and keep it competitive.

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.

Are you Interested in an Associate of Science (AS) degree?

If your goal is to get a transferable, skills-based degree, you’re in the right place. Any certificate can be combined with general education courses to create your AS degree.

Seeking to expand your job-related skills to broaden career options? Strengthen your resume by including two certificates in your degree. Or, discover new interests by choosing one certificate and exploring elective credits. Are you a Pathway student interested in attending LDSBC? Those earned credits can be transferred to your AS degree as electives.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll graduate with the technical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that employers look for, so you can secure a career and excel.

Interested in continuing your education after you graduate? No problem. Your regionally-accredited AS degree, which includes the credits from your selected certificate(s), can be transferred to a 4-year institution.
