Graduate students who enroll in the new Master's Certificate in Entrepreneurship (MC-ENTR) at Duquesne University's Palumbo-Donahue School of Business can earn a 15-credit certificate that features an interdisciplinary curriculum with a solid foundation in ideation, management and law.

Launching in the fall of 2021, the MC-ENTR is a 15-credit certificate that also is stackable with both Duquesne's Professional MBA and Master of Science in Management programs. The program, which includes access to a robust professional network and entrepreneurship ecosystem, will be offered in a hybrid format that will combine online learning with face-to-face instruction.

"Pittsburgh's large and growing entrepreneurial ecosystem has embraced the promise of innovation, technology commercialization and new venture creation," said Dr. Karen Donovan, associate dean of graduate programs and executive education in the business school at Duquesne. "Our MC-ENTR supports this ecosystem by educating innovative thinkers who know how to take calculated risks and seize opportunities to solve problems and create value."

MC-ENTR students will be able to work in the business school's state-of-the-art Center for Excellence in Entrepreneurship, which includes an ideation suite and a maker space for creating, inventing and learning.

"The Palumbo-Donahue School of Business consistently seeks feedback from our students, alumni, advisory council and industry partners," said Chris Rouhier, director of graduate admissions. "The development of the MC-ENTR is yet another demonstration of our commitment to delivering dynamic programs and horizon-expanding education that meet the needs of students and employers."
