Purpose

The Entrepreneurship Program

Judson’s Division of Professional Studies launched its accredited MBA program in 2013. As a first step toward creating an entrepreneurial program, Judson is now offering an entrepreneurial certificate that can accompany any traditional undergraduate degree. The university is also researching development of a distinctive entrepreneurial competency within the higher education sector that does not duplicate its existing programs.
