Certificates and Special Programs
Certificates are noted on the student's transcript but they do not require the completion of a bachelor's degree to be recorded. In addition, students receive a document to note the completion of the program. The College of Business offers certificates in the following areas: Gerontology, International Business, Risk Management, and Business Intelligence.
To apply for a certificate, a student must complete an application and submit to the College of Business Student Academic Services office, Fleming West
102. The application may be submitted once the final course is in progress.
Special Courses - "areas of concentration" - are not part of any formal business degree, certificate, or minor program. Instead, they provide an opportunity for a student to build their own unique emphasis area to supplement a major. In addition, a limited number of non-AACSB accredited business-related courses are available outside the College of Business such The Actuarial Science Certificate (College of Science/ Math Dept.) and the Commercial Music Major/ Minor (College of Arts & Letters/ Music Dept).
Executive Continuing Education - offers approximately ten business-related Certificate Programs and Seminars, not for credit (and thus non-AACSB accredited) but for professional development.
