The graduate certificates in business are designed to allow working professionals to develop expertise and acquire a credential beyond their undergraduate degree. The certificate program allows students to:
- Specialize in new areas of business
- Update older information or degree
- Acquire added skills and credentials to increase their career opportunities
The program allows a student, with guidance of a graduate programs coordinator, to choose a customized program of five 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, finance, sustainability, marketing, innovation and entrepreneurship, and business analytics. Course work for the certificate may be applied to other advanced graduate degrees if enrolled in those degree programs prior to completion of the certificate program.
Upon completion of the requirements for the Certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, students will have posted to their transcripts the entry, Certificate of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and be issued a certificate.
Detailed admission requirements are listed below. Seattle University graduate students may also be eligible for the certificate programs. For more information, contact Aaron Thornburg at (206) 398-4312.
