Certificate Series : Entrepreneurial Finance Certificate

Tuition: $495.00

Description:
Finance is a key to entrepreneurial success. The lack of financial knowledge about business and business start-ups is also and one of the leading causes of failure for entrepreneurial ventures.
As an entrepreneur, you have limited time, and you certainly have limited resources.  So knowing where to put your valuable time, and your limited resources, is critical to the success of your new venture.
You will start by gaining a deeper knowledge of the financial concepts and accounting processes used in most businesses. You will take back practical techniques that will increase your effectiveness and entrepreneurial success.  And you will get an understanding of the seven steps in the accounting cycle and how to use financial information in decision making. You will come away with the knowledge to analyze resource allocation and evaluate financial performance.
Then discover the keys to managing cash. Cash is arguably the most important factor in new business success. D&B reports 90% of all small business failures are due to poor cash flow. As an entrepreneur, you will find out how to maximize cash flow, learn the importance of cash and find out your role in cash flow success.
Finally, you will explore potential debt and equity sources of funds to help support your entrepreneurial work and create a financially successful venture. Find out where business start-up money comes from, and ways to get it.

Series : 3D Printing for Educators

Tuition: $345.00   

Description:
There has been a lot of excitement about the use of 3D printers in education, but educators can have trouble both getting started with the technology and figuring out what to do with it. This two-class certificate covers both aspects, starting with how the technology works and then moving on to how to use it effectively. If participants already have 3D printers, the instructors will customize the class as much as possible so participants can follow along on the hardware they have. If a participant does not yet have access to a 3D printer, the instructors can help with helping participants define criteria to make decisions about appropriate hardware to buy.
 
The intro class (recommended to be taken first) covers the entire 3D printing workflow with a focus on open source and free software. The market is somewhat fractured and different 3D printers vary somewhat in their operations there are not a lot of standards in the industry yet, but the instructors will guide participants through what the options are and where to learn the details of operation of their particular existing or planned hardware.
 
The second class then builds on this knowledge to think about how to help students create their own exploratory models, or how to create models that a teacher can create to help students visualize an abstract concept. Participants will use some of the software covered in the Intro to 3D Printing class to create several different types of 3D printable models, and will discuss the details of how to print their design on the 3D printer they already have or plan to acquire in the future.
