The Management Certificate begins with a study of basic principles, concepts and procedures. Upon successful completion of these initial courses, students apply their knowledge in a capstone management strategy course. This final course allows students to apply previous learning through cases, simulations and integrated activities. Students are expected to use and demonstrate reasoning skills, strategies and a basic understanding of decision-making.
Successful completion of this certificate provides students with both an academic foundation and practical skills in the field of management. It is ideal for individuals already working in the business world who seek opportunities for personal and professional growth in for-profit and non-profit firms.
Note: All credits earned in this certificate program can be applied toward the associate in science degree in Business program with a concentration in Management or General Business. Many courses require prerequisites, corequisites and/or testing. See course descriptions for details.
