Small Business and Entrepreneurship
Small business is critical to the United States economy. Whether you want to open a traditional store-front, a home operation, an online venture, or simply learn the foundations of business, this certificate equips you with the knowledge and skills you need.
Entrepreneurship has many benefits other than working for oneself. Entrepreneurs and small family-owned businesses have the opportunity to create jobs and improve work/life balance. The role of the entrepreneur and the small business owner is highly creative and innovative, and their businesses can lead to flourishing communities. If you’ve considered working for yourself or enhancing your small business knowledge, the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Certificate at Hunter’s Continuing Education will be your guide.
The Small Business and Entrepreneurship certificate, developed in partnership with Project for Return and Opportunity in Veterans Education (PROVE), was designed in an effort to promote and expand small business opportunities for veterans throughout New York City as they transition from military service to student life. The certificate is also open to non-veterans. Veterans interested in pursuing this certificate should contact our bursar, Milena Timerman, to learn more about using GI Bill benefits toward this program.
