Entrepreneurship Certificate

The Buerk Center’s certificate in entrepreneurship prepares University of Washington graduate and PhD students for the world of start-ups and new technology enterprises. Our emphasis on cross-campus involvement means you’ll take entrepreneurship courses alongside students from other disciplines, work with UW inventors on their market-ready applications, and have the opportunity to apply for fellowships in UW technology ventures or local angel funds. Certificate students, whose disciplines range from engineering and architecture to drama and medicine, take classes, gain real-world experience, and network with the region’s most innovative entrepreneurs. Working together, students bring ideas to life through entrepreneurship competitions and the Jones + Foster Accelerator. At completion of the TEC, students will receive a printed certificate as proof of successful completion. The individual ENTRE classes will show on your transcript but not the actual certificate.

Please note: This certificate is only open to currently enrolled, degree-seeking University of Washington graduate students. This is not a stand-alone certificate.
