Business Administration

Total Hours Required for Certificate:  15

A Graduate Certificate in Business Administration is offered to meet the needs of those students who are already holding non-business undergraduate degrees (engineering, sciences, liberal arts, nursing, etc.), and aspiring to advance their careers by acquiring basic skills and knowledge in accounting, finance, economics, management, and marketing.
