The Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation (EBI) Certificate is a ten-month program focused on developing occupational-specific skills along with the employability and leadership of students through technical courses. Students of this program will explore areas like human resources, finance, development, and strategic planning in order to become well-rounded employees and business leaders.

The ability to be a leader in the workplace is highly sought after by employers and provides a crucial stepping stone to starting and running an independent business. Focusing on building transferable skills and foundational knowledge of a variety of areas is essential in understanding how businesses are grown and run, setting students up for success in a variety of industries. Students will also have the opportunity to explore and develop their own plan for a business as they learn what it takes to operationally run a company.

Students will have the opportunity to apply and refine the skills they develop throughout the program in an unpaid work practicum experience at the end of the program. This hands-on experience will help students practice their skills in the workplace, connect them to potential future employers, and build real working experience before starting their careers.

Who it is for

Students (18 years and older) who wish to build the foundational skills for business acumen in the Canadian workplace. These individuals can implement a variety of transferable skills to contribute to a business as an intrapreneur, manage a business, or eventually start their own business.

Work practicum

Qualifying students apply skills learned in the classroom and develop new skills during a mandatory full-time, four-week work practicum with a local business/employer. As per IRCC, students must have a co-op work permit to be eligible for the work practicum. It is the student’s responsibility to apply for the co-op work permit at least four months before the practicum begins.

Work practicum is a mandatory component of this program. Students must meet all program eligibility criteria to qualify for practicum. MITT does not guarantee practicum placements when students do not meet eligibility criteria (including having a valid co-op work permit) or when sufficient placements are not available. In such situations, MITT will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.

Policy information

Applicants and students of the Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation program will be subject to MITT’s admissions, academic, financial, and withdrawal policies throughout the application process and duration of the program. Students will also be responsible for adhering to MITT’s academic policies, such as attendance, academic integrity, safety and appropriate conduct as outlined on the first day of the program.

Continuous Program Improvement

MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
