The Entrepreneurship Certificate is designed for students interested in launching their own business ventures or working in start-up companies. Graduates will have knowledge to develop a business plan that integrates information and skills essential to ethical business operations and functions.

 The program is designed to fit into one year and covers accounting, management, business plan development, sales/service, marketing and human resource management. 

In addition to the certificate program, SCCC offers an annual Speed Pitch competition in partnership with the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce. Students submit business plans which are judged by a panel of Capital Region experts in business, marketing, public relations and entrepreneurship. The winner receives five hours of business coaching through the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber. Business ideas have included a Puerto Rican Spice Blend, a specialty bakery in the Adirondacks, a boutique consignment shop and a bookkeeping service.
