GEB 6215 Certification

A graduate-level prerequisite in the flexible program, GEB 6215 Certification strives to ensure all Business Communication efforts in the College of Business are consistent with the AACSB Best Practices. Within three semesters following an “Incomplete” grade in GEB 6215, each student is required to submit and be certified on a short paper, reference paper, and oral presentation, each from a core or elective course in the student’s graduate program. Once each of these requirements has been met, the student will be GEB 6215 Certified and will receive an “S” for the course, which is a prerequisite of graduation. The precise details of the GEB Certification will be provided during class.

GEB 6215 will prepare students for the remainder of core courses for their respective graduate program. After this course, students will have three semesters to receive GEB Certification.
