The Higher Learning Commission has approved the newest Saint Mary’s Accelerator.
The graduate certificate in innovation and entrepreneurship will be added to the suite of 11 others launched in August to create flexible pathways to degree completion for adult learners, a key component of our strategic plan. The certificate was designed by Christine Beech, D.M., executive director of the Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies and assistant professor of business, in response to the strong need for entrepreneurship education for the Rochester, Minn., market. While only available online in the spring, we are looking forward to offering it at the Rochester Campus, once restrictions due to COVID-19 have eased, as well as online.
These 12 newest graduate certificates are among 20 offered by Saint Mary’s and greatly expand our ability to reach new and more diverse audiences.
