About the program

This is a university-accredited Micro MBA Certificate Program for Businesses Owners who have been in operation for at least 3 years. This highly practical course will be taught by university instructors and will provide entrepreneurs with the key fundamentals of business, and the tools to become certified vendors.

The purpose of this fund is to remove the financial barrier for entrepreneurs who aim to grow their business, and/or become a vendor for corporations and public utilities entities, supporting the efforts to have a diverse business ecosystem. NLBWA-IE offers scholarships based on commitment, financial need, and business industry. The cost of a full scholarship is $2,000. Our goal is to reach $4,000 by July, to offer 2 full scholarships for the fall program.

This program gives business owners the opportunity to experience a college-level class, further advance their personal education and prepare them to conduct business with large corporations, government agencies and public utilities.
