Certificate of Graduate Studies Programs

The certificate programs in management are designed to respond to the growing need for professional growth and development in an atmosphere of rapid change. Global competition and the evolutionary dynamics of a market economy require that we all continue to sharpen existing skills and expand our knowledge into new areas. Certificate programs offer opportunities for those who desire continued professional development without formal pursuit of a master’s degree. Curriculum certificate programs are available in management, human resources management, organizational development, and individualized concentrations. Prerequisites as indicated in the course descriptions are required unless specifically waived by the program director. Students select four courses (12 credits) from the options listed for each concentration.
