Driven by a mission to educate the next generation of innovators, critical thinkers and business leaders, Iona College is offering an exciting new graduate-level certificate program, “Fostering an ‘Entrepreneurial Mindset’ Is Key in Today’s Economy,” at Iona’s Hynes Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
This new certificate is ideal for students who want to fast-track the creation of their entrepreneurial ventures and for professionals who would like to build their entrepreneurial skills to advance their careers within their existing organizations.
The certificate program is 15 credits (or five MBA-level courses) and provides immersive and collaborative experiences in problem solving, ideation, design thinking and business modeling. The program is also designed to help students gain access to Iona’s collaborative workspace, mentorship and startup support, as well as opportunities to present to potential investors.
“We are truly on the cusp of something great,” said Christoph Winkler, Ph.D., founding director of the Hynes Institute. “Our interdisciplinary approach encourages students across all disciplines to think and act entrepreneurially by creating something of value for themselves and our economy.”
