I'm looking into entrepreneurship and I'm having a difficult time choosing between a certificate in entrepreneurship or a bachelors in entrepreneurial studies. I am aware the time frame to complete is different. Will I learn less with a certificate in the field (I just wouldn't take general ed before I get to my major classes) or would it be the same if I'm doing a bachelor's route?
Have an Answer?
I will answer the question based on my experience.
When I first enrolled in college, I was in a similar
situation. I was taking GE classes and needed
to decide on a major.
At the time, I turned my interests into options
for a bachelor's degree. For me, they included:
a) computer science, b) entrepreneurship, and
c) business administration.
Things that I liked and wanted to learn about.
Upon review of each option: I chose "a" but
after ~2.5 years of study, it became evident
to me... "c" would be the better choice.
The logic was "c": incorporates parts of "b" + "a"
is widely recognized, and has a longer useful life.
"b" was never a real consideration as it was new
and not widely accepted (in the labor force).
Times are different now but I would still
go the same route and recommend it.
PS: If pressed, the one change I would make.
Get a minor in one of your interests; it will keep
you busy during school but after graduation, it
may complement your lifestyle/career.
