Innovation Management, Graduate Certificate

Business professionals are much like businesses themselves—as opportunities emerge and the marketplace evolves, their needs change. And sometimes, the best investment in your future is the one you can make now. D’Amore-McKim’s specialty graduate certificates are the perfect way to learn the specific skills you need to seize a new career opportunity. They’re also a great way to put an educational down payment on longer-term ambitions. Credits earned in this program can transfer into the part-time MBA or other masterʼs programs at Northeastern (check with advisor).
