The Center for Entrepreneurship at the John Cook School of Business has announced a new noncredit certificate program in entrepreneurship for students and alumni.
The goal of Diplomate (diploma+certificate combined) is to help students and alumni bolster their resumes, network with business leaders and learn some entrepreneurial skills during a 50-minute sessions.
The program involves a limited number of workshops, speaker events and competitions. Click here for a more detailed description of the program.
The Diplomate workshops kick off from 5-5:50 p.m. this Thursday, Feb 9, in room 236 at Cook Hall. Click here to register.
The first workshop, "Starting a Business Using Social Media," will be taught by entrepreneurship adjunct professor Ron Roy.
In 2007, Ron Roy sold his first technology business, UltraStar, to LiveNation for millions. He then started a new business called Wines That Rock (wines-that-rock.com). After a few years of only leveraging social media and e-commerce, Wines That Rock is now in over 2,000 retail locations. It's the official wine of the Hard Rock Cafe and it's bigger online than every wine maker in the world (except for two).
The 50 minute session is free and open to all alumni and students across campus, including the business school, law school, medical campus, engineering School and all other SLU schools.
