Certificate Requirements

  • Completion of all required and elective credits from the course options listed below
  • Completion of the certificate with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above

In addition, students should be aware of the following course application limitations:

  • Courses taken by non-degree students are not eligible to be applied towards certificates.
  • Students may only apply a course to two program requirements (for example, MBAD 6224 may be applied to both the MBA and the graduate certificate, but that course may not subsequently be applied to any other degree or certificate requirements).
  • Students who choose to enroll in two graduate certificates may only "double count" up to six credits between the two certificates; all remaining requirements (typically, 18 credits for two certificates) must be unique to each certificate.
