"I loved the Entrepreneurial Program at University of Hartford and have recommended it to several business colleagues and friends. My experience exceeded my expectations. I originally decided to take the course for some “basic” business principles. Although I have currently been in business for 18 years and have taken several advanced trainings in my field of expertise, I have never taken a business course. The entire staff was in genuine support of my success. Several times I received follow-up calls asking, “What else can I do to help?” The staff made sure all my needs were met and encouraged me to continue to reach out for support even after the conclusion of the program.
"Through the program, I was able to connect with experienced trained professionals in Marketing, Social Media, Human Resources and much more. Nothing at all basic about these vital resources! The program helped me develop an effective business plan for the expansion of my business. I now have the confidence needed to submit my business plan to financial institutions and look forward to taking my business to the next level. I would recommend this program to anyone in business!"
