Study on your own terms. The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration has been designed with working professionals in mind. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays. You may even take one of our courses online. You can choose to come to campus just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester.
Start your Graduate Certificate in Business Administration at a time that works for you. You can enter the program in September, January, or May.
Build toward something more. The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration is a unique opportunity to quickly gain fundamental business knowledge and earn a graduate-level credential from a top 40 U.S. Research University, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. And that’s just the beginning.
When you are ready to pursue a full graduate degree at D’Amore-McKim—now or in the future—the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible master’s programs, including the Part-Time MBA. Successfully complete our Part-Time MBA Path, and you may be eligible to waive the GMAT requirement when you later apply for a D’Amore-McKim graduate program. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
