The Business Management certificate program is designed to meet the needs of professional managers or those who aspire to become managers. In this short-term program, students will acquire fundamental knowledge and skills while establishing a sound academic base for an associate degree in Business Administration.
A certificate in Business Management may benefit individuals seeking career advancement opportunities in the areas of industry, financial services, distribution, health services, retailing, government, small business and non-profit organizations.
Students admitted in September or January.
The Business Management program is offered as a full-time or part-time day program or part-time evening program. Because of the sequencing of courses, it may take longer than four semesters to complete the part-time evening program, or two semesters to complete the full-time day program, if a student begins in a spring semester.
