CERTIFICATES AT WAIE
Innovation & Entrepreneurship
The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Certificate is for those who are passionate about using business to change the world around them, but may not be sure on how to go about implementing it. The one of a kind certificate will guide you step-by-step through solid business planning. By the time you complete you will have either started your own venture or supported a fellow young scholar in launching a new venture.
NOTE: WAIE is currently in the process of completing accreditation review for curriculum and will be completed before the first graduation of our young scholars.
What are the learning outcomes?
The Innovation & Entrepreneurship certificate is part of our core certificates in the Diploma+ program. The certificate has three main learning outcomes for our young scholars.
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of what it means to be an entrepreneur.
- Complete a business plan and launch/support the launch of a new venture.
- Create a positive impact on the greater community through entrepreneurship.
“There is a common and persistent belief out there that entrepreneurship is about creativity – that it’s about having a great idea. But it’s not, really. Entrepreneurship isn’t about creativity. It’s about organization-building – which, in turn, is about people.”
— Andrew Yang
