Why
The new Certificate in Ideation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship allows students to acquire business knowledge related to innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship; skills and abilities that can be applied to any discipline.

Small businesses – businesses with fewer than 50 employees – accounted for over 98.9% of the more than 150,000 business enterprises in the province in 2019 and are active in virtually every sector of the economy. In 2018, small businesses employed 31.0% of Saskatchewan’s workers.*


Who It's For

  1. Current University of Regina students
    • Hill business students
      • This micro-credential is a great way for students taking traditional majors to differentiate themselves.
    • Non-business students from other Faculties
      • There is a high incidence of entrepreneurship as a career choice for students in many other Faculties including Engineering, MAP, Kinesiology and Science. This certificate is a great way for students to offset their technical expertise with foundational business knowledge.
  2. University of Regina alumni
    • Build upon your past education and experience in order to succeed in your future entrepreneurial goals.

  3. Even if you are not a current U of R student or alumni this certificate may still be for you - contact us to chart your path towards attaining this credential!

What It Looks Like
The Certificate will expose students to divergent and convergent systematic approaches to create ideas, recognize opportunities, and capitalize on those opportunities. It will provide business principles and models in the context of entrepreneurship and develop an awareness of general business model functions.
