About the Program
Being an entrepreneur takes courage and creativity.

The Entrepreneurship Certificate at MPTC is designed to help entrepreneurs reach their goals, whether big or small, by exploring all aspects of small business start-up and operation.
What You’ll Learn
Spread out over two semesters, the entrepreneurship coursework provides new and existing entrepreneurs hands-on training in business planning, financing, marketing, customer service, financial management and business communications.
