For Spring 2017, we are offering courses related to our Certificate of Entrepreneurship (see below), as well as courses for our Certificate of 3D Printing and Design.  

For Undergraduate Students

Our Certificate of Entrepreneurship introductory course:

“Entrepreneurial Mindset and Innovation" (ENTR 201) is open to any student of any major. It is a hands-on, highly interactive course involving group projects, brainstorming, problem-solving and mentoring. You won’t see a professor lecturing at the front of the room for two hours. In teams, students will create and present a simple business model that provides a solution to a real-life problem, with guidance and feedback from the instructor. Only one-third of the students in ENTR 201 have been business students; the others come from all over campus. The only pre-requisite for ENTR 201 is freshman English.

“It’s totally different than anything that Montclair offers ... it really challenges your way of thinking,” is how one student summed up ENTR 201. Another student said: “No other class is preparing me for life like this."

ENTR 201 "Entrepreneurial Mindset and Innovation" will be offered during Spring 2017:
Mondays, 2:30-5:00 p.m.
Tuesdays, 5:30-8:00 p.m.
