Graduate Certificate Programs

Business professionals are much like businesses themselves—as opportunities emerge and the marketplace evolves, their needs change. Designed for working professionals, our graduate certificates are a way to quickly gain specialized knowledge and a professional credential in order to advance your career. Our certificates require 12 to 15 credits that you may accelerate and take in as little as one semester, or spread out and take up to three years to complete. With three start dates each year and no GMAT required for admission, you can quickly gain the skills you need most in your career—now!

Just-in-Time Learning. Our graduate certificate programs are designed to give you training that you can use immediately. The skills you learn in an evening class will be useful to you the next morning at work. At D’Amore-McKim School of Business, you won’t just find theoretical training for a theoretical future—you’ll also have the opportunity to gain practical, real-world knowledge rooted in the realities of working life.

Shape your own experience. When you pursue a graduate certificate, you have the opportunity to focus your studies and specialize in the area of business that provides you with the best career opportunities.

Study on your own terms. Our graduate certificate programs are designed with working professionals in mind. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays. You may even take one of our courses online. You can choose to come to campus just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester. Start your graduate certificate at a time that works for you. You can enter your program in January, May, or September.

Build toward something more. Our graduate certificate programs are a unique opportunity to quickly gain fundamental business knowledge and earn a graduate-level credential from a top 40 U.S. research university, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. And that’s just the beginning. When you are ready to pursue a full graduate degree at D’Amore-McKim—now or in the future—the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible master’s programs, including the part-time MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
