The Post-Master Certificate Program in General Management is a 15-hour course of study designed to accommodate individuals with a graduate degree in a non-business field who seek core business knowledge. The program emphasizes coursework that covers the major disciplines within the field of business. Upon completion, students will have core knowledge of common business practices and corporate procedures.
Completing the prescribed course of study in a post-masters certificate program leads to a certificate (officially granted by the university) only and not to a degree, but course work completed within this program can subsequently be transferred (if sufficiently current) to a graduate business degree program.
Applicants to the Post-Masters Certificate in General Management must hold a non-business Master's degree. Applicants should have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better in their Master's degree. The applicant must also have completed a college course in calculus and a college course in statistics to be eligible for the program. The applicant would be required to submit the following application materials: the Application for Graduate Study, the application fee, the SBA Supplemental Application Form, and official transcripts from their undergraduate and graduate degrees. The GMAT is not required for admission to the Post-Master Certificate in General Management. The Office of Graduate Business Programs and the Graduate Admissions Committee will review files for admission.
