Graduate Certificate in Management of Technology & Innovation

The Graduate Certificate in Management of Technology and Innovation focuses on organizational management and innovation/entrepreneurship processes. Students will explore broad technology strategies not only to maximize business applications, but also to launch and build new ventures.

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 cannot 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.
