Computer science skills open career avenues all over the world—and even from one’s own home. As such, learning key professional development skills broadens the spectrum of opportunities. Classes in entrepreneurship teach students how to identify new ventures, research market trends, and create business plans. Entrepreneurs are idea people who can bring resources together to meet customers’ needs and make a profit.

Because many entrepreneurs work freelance, average salaries can range dramatically. Strong computer science entrepreneurial skills lend to job opportunities in product management, marketing, and running a small business online. Many freelancers specialize in web development or graphic design. Web developer job opportunities are projected to grow by 13% in the next 10 years, with average salaries of around $70,000.

Individuals looking to hone their entrepreneurial skills have several course options, most between 8 and 12 weeks in length. Many are part-time and online. Students should be mindful of experience-level requirements when selecting a bootcamp. While many don’t require previous experience, some are for PhD-level students only. Most programs will help students develop their portfolios.
