The Graduate Certificate in Business Essentials will provide the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities required of both new professionals and experienced managers to advance in their careers. The curriculum is designed to develop core competencies that apply to managerial positions in all industries: accounting, finance, marketing, management, economics, and statistics.
The Certificate program is designed to be completed in as little as two academic semesters. Three courses will be offered each semester – two in a face-to-face format and one delivered online.
This program will offer an excellent opportunity for people with non-business backgrounds to earn a graduate-level certificate. If you are subsequently accepted into our Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, your certificate courses may be applied to the MBA to reduce the overall credit requirement.
