About the Program

The Santa Fe Community College Entrepreneurship Institute offers an entirely online and accelerated certificate program that you can complete in two semesters without putting your job or family on hold. As a changing global economy emphasizes the Internet and franchises, entrepreneurial opportunities have become a driving force of the world market. You will learn how to plan an entrepreneurial venture, create a business model, operate in a global setting and harness the advantages and far-reaching impact of e-commerce. As part of the program, you will have opportunities to interact with successful entrepreneurs.

The program was initiated with startup funding from the Santa Fe Community College Training Center, an incubator set up to take ideas for academic programs and develop them into curricular opportunities that serve the community. The program is offered to anyone interested in entrepreneurship, from small business owners and seniors looking for a second career, to existing and prospective franchise owners and students majoring in other fields. Many students will continue their education and transfer their credits toward a four-year degree.

Students in the program will be able to graduate with a certificate in entrepreneurship or earn a concentration in entrepreneurship as part of the associate in applied science degree in business administration at SFCC. The five entrepreneurship classes, which are each eight weeks in length, are to be taken consecutively.
