Certificate in Business
The Certificate in Business program provides professional and graduate students an opportunity to obtain valuable, fundamental business education and enhance their analytical skills, as well as soft skills. The program consists of seven courses in business covering all fundamental functions central to any business operation. Students can take one or more courses for credit, but must satisfactorily complete all seven courses to be awarded the certificate. One or more of these courses may also serve as part of the specialized master's degrees. The Graduate Admissions Committee welcomes applications from individuals whose undergraduate degrees are from accredited colleges or universities. The GMAT and GRE are not required except from students seeking admission to the specialized master’s programs.
