The program allows a student, with guidance of the director of graduate programs, to choose a customized program of six graduate business classes from the graduate courses offered through the Albers School of Business and Economics. Certificates are awarded in the following areas of specialization: accounting, business valuation, economics, e-commerce/information systems, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, management, and marketing. Course work for the certificate may be applied to other advanced graduate degrees.
Upon completion of the requirements of the program, students will have posted to their transcripts the entry, Certificate of Post-MBA, or Certificate of Post-MBA Studies in (insert discipline) and be issued a certificate listing the discipline studied.
