This certificate program is intended primarily for individuals interested in learning more advanced concepts in accounting after completion of an MBA or equivalent degree. Students apply through the Office of Graduate Programs, and are not eligible for federal financial aid.
Courses in the program have prerequisites which must be completed, if not already taken as part of the prior MBA or equivalent degree. At most one equivalent graduate-level course in which a grade of B (3.0) or better was earned may be transferred into the program.
Admission to the Program
Students pursuing certificates in business are admitted to the program using the same criteria as those currently existing for the MBA program with the exception of GMAT or GRE scores. Admission to the Post-Master’s Certificate requires an MBA or equivalent degree. Applicants should have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better in their bachelor’s degree. The applicants must also have completed a college level mathematics, statistics, or quantitative course to be eligible for the program.
