Program Overview

The Business Management Technology undergraduate certificate provides a background for both experienced and aspiring business managers. For the business manager who may already have a degree in a field other than business, the program offers professional certification. For the person who aspires to a management position, the certificate articulates well into an Associate of Applied Business degree.

Certificates are also an excellent opportunity for students looking to ease into a degree program or for students currently working on a degree. Since each certificate program works differently in terms of time to completion, scheduling, delivery method, and financial aid, it’s best to talk to an academic advisor to get all the details!

This program is designed to be completed in 30 weeks.
