Accelerate your career without the commitment of an MBA
The Graduate Certificate focuses on four foundational business courses taught by our nationally-recognized MBA faculty. The Certificate is tailored to those who are not ready to commit to pursuing an MBA, those without an undergraduate degree in business, and those who have been out of school for a few years. Add value on the job today with what you learned in our Certificate program last night. Should you choose to pursue your MBA later, you can apply these credits.
This 12-credit hour certificate can be completed in as little as two semesters (either fall/spring or spring/fall) of part-time study. All classes are scheduled in the evenings between Monday through Thursday from 6:30 pm to 9:20 pm at the UNCG campus.
