For years we believed that entrepreneurs are born as the skills that one requires to be an entrepreneur are said to be innate and not acquired. That belief is not true anymore - entrepreneurship can be taught.
Through this MicroMasters program, you will learn how to take the plunge to become an entrepreneur and imbibe management skills to administer early days of your venture. This program will benefit not only aspiring and present entrepreneurs, but also those who are in companies and would like to engage in intrapreneurial activities.

- Unfortunately, learners residing in one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this program: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this program in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
