According to a 2012 article published in the Chronicle of Higher Education, certificates are the fastest-growing form of post-secondary education in the United States. Certificates in the Welch College of Business are designed for students who would like to specialize in one of the areas below without pursuing a full graduate degree or for those who already have a master’s degree and would like to upgrade their skills.
Graduate business certificates are offered in:
- Core Business Skills
- Corporate Finance
- Digital Marketing
- Global Investments
- Healthcare Administration
- Human Resource Management
Students who have successfully completed a graduate certificate may apply to the master’s program and, upon acceptance, may be able to use credits earned in the certificate program toward the master’s degree. Students currently matriculated in the master’s program are not eligible for a graduate certificate. Also, an individual course may not be used for multiple certificates. Admission procedures and requirements may vary by graduate certificate program.
