The Path to an MBA

After completing the business skills course, you’ll have the opportunity to take one more course from our MBA program and receive a graduate certificate. Furthermore, finishing the Graduate Certificate in Management places you well on your way to pursuing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. in other words, once earning the graduate certificate, you’ll have 1/3 of our MBA program completed.

Therefore, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue your master’s degree. Not only will you save valuable time but also provide cost-effective advantages as you make progress toward higher educational goals.
