The Entrepreneurship Certificate Program (ECP) provides UNCP students in good standing from all majors the opportunity to learn how to start and manage their own businesses. The ECP consists of five courses (15 hours) in a 2-2-1 format. The first course (ENTR 2000) in the program covers business start-ups. The second course (ENTR 2100) covers business sustainability. The next two designated courses are from the major field of the student, of 3000 or higher level, with departmental approval and determined before the student matriculates in this program. The last course (ENTR 4000) helps the student create a comprehensive business plan. An entrepreneurship certificate will be granted after the successful completion of the program provided the student has a “C” average in the major courses and a “C” average in the Entrepreneurship courses.
