St. Petersburg College has created a new Entrepreneurship Certificate program, which will accept its first students later this summer, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
The program involves four eight-week courses: an introductory course, then three more on management, marketing and sales and planning, the paper reports. The classes are designed so they can be taken at the same time, and can also count toward a full degree.
"We really think that this program is going to take off and that there is a market for it," Nicolle Panuthos, director of entrepreneurship and academic chairwoman for business technologies at the college, told the paper. "It's the wave of the future."
