The Certificate in Strategic Innovation allows you to customize your certificate based on your interests and career goals. In addition to earning 12 credits, you are encouraged to participate in related non-credit innovation immersion experiences via competitions.
The required foundation course MHR 715 - Strategic Management of Innovation has no prerequisites and is open to all graduate students in a degree-seeking program at UW-Madison. In addition to MHR 715, you must earn at least 3 credits from the Advanced Innovation Business Courses below and up to six credits of additional advanced entrepreneurship or elective coursework.
Note: You may not use the same advanced business course to acquire two certificates (i.e. MHR 715 - Strategic Management of Innovation, MHR 722 - Entrepreneurial Management, and MHR 741 - Technology Entrepreneurship cannot be counted for more than one certificate).
Note: Courses may not be taken pass/fail.
