Entrepreneurship

The entrepreneurship certificate level program is designed to prepare prospective entrepreneurs to launch new ventures by educating them in the fundamentals of starting and operating their own business. For entrepreneurs who already have established a business, this program will help them strengthen their business and management skills.

Entrepreneurship is an employment strategy that can lead to economic self-sufficiency. Self-employment provides people and their families with the potential to create and manage businesses in which they function as the employer or boss, rather than merely being an employee. Graduates who want to expand their business management skills further can go on to complete the associate degree business administration program at NMCC; they will be able to apply 30 of the 33 credits they have earned toward an AAS in business administration.
