MBA Plus Certificate

The MBA Plus graduate certificate program provides an opportunity for graduates of AACSB-accredited MBA programs to broaden and update their business education. As business conditions, tools, and techniques change rapidly, the MBA Plus provides an excellent way to stay at the forefront of knowledge.

The Program:

The MBA Plus Certificate requires completion of 12 semester hours of 6000-level courses. Students are permitted to take more than the minimum number of hours. At least nine hours must be MBA elective courses. One three-hour core course may be a repeat of a course previously taken. This may be desirable if there has been a substantial change in content in an area of interest since the student received his/her MBA degree. More courses may be repeated if desired, but only one such course will count toward the certificate.
