Certificate in Entrepreneurship

Covenant has a strong history of graduating entrepreneurs. Undoubtedly that is a testament to our strong liberal arts core (fostering broad-based curiosity) and our strong Reformed underpinnings (fostering provocation and making “all things new”). Both of these behavioral tendencies (curiosity and provocation) are central to entrepreneurial endeavor. In short, entrepreneurs are risk-taking profit makers driven by their curiosities to find untapped needs in the marketplace and to provoke others to come alongside them (as investors, employees, suppliers, etc.) to meet the untapped need. The College is missionally well suited to equip students with such leanings. And the city of Chattanooga has emerged as an “alternate Silicon Valley” - https://www.inc.com/jeff-barrett/how-chattanooga-attracted-gary-vaynerchuk-steve-case-2-billion-in-startup-exits.html. The time is indeed ripe for the College to launch this certificate program.

Program Components: the course of study is designed to provide foundational knowledge/skills related to the strategy, management, marketing, and financing of entrepreneurial enterprises, while complimenting that foundation with tangential knowledge/skills related to creativity, innovation, and inclusiveness.
