SIAT and Entrepreneurship

"Going into the 2nd half of my 4th year I discovered the Certificate of Entrepreneurship and realized that many of my upper-division classes qualified as a part of the certificate. The core certificate classes of Project Management and Financing New Ventures were of interest to me, as I saw I could apply the knowledge I learned from those courses, directly to Studio Kleio. My round-about journey led me to apply for the certificate so I could learn real applicable knowledge from those classes and apply them to my business."
