SANTA CLARA UNIVERSITY


U.S. Entrepreneurship Certification Examination

The U.S. Entrepreneurship Certification Examination is available in April 2023. This customized examination is industry-endorsed by America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and SCORE and is available in High School and Adult Basic (suitable for HSE/IET/ABE/ESL) levels. Both examinations assess the same entrepreneurship content. The examination is also cross-walked with two international online entrepreneurship examinations (available in Spanish) administered by My Own Business Institute (MOBI) in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley, California.

Upon passing the U.S. Entrepreneurship Certification Examination, students have the option of earning two MOBI entrepreneurship certificates and digital badges with little to no further preparation and at no additional cost for a total of three stackable entrepreneurship credentials. Free examination instructional aids (teacher guide, student guide, blueprint, and practice test) are available in January 2023, as well as optional MOBI online entrepreneurship course modules with practice quizzes that serve as a review and/or supplement to classroom instruction.

These value-added entrepreneurship resources and credentials help better prepare high school and adult education students for college and career opportunities in the new Innovation & Gig Economy.
