Certificates provide you with comprehensive and structured programs to acquire technical business skills and experiences alongside your liberal arts education.
Certificates are cocurricular and are not part of a major, minor or concentration. To earn a certificate, students normally need to fulfill five requirements consisting of three courses, five workshops held during academic breaks, an internship, job shadowing and a tutorial in advanced Excel.
Taught by alumni, faculty and professionals, you will gain a practical understanding of the inner workings of how business operates through alumni-led workshops. To explore the role ethics plays in business, you’ll engage in case-study research and discussions, present your findings and develop the confidence needed to succeed as a principled leader.
Starting freshman year, you are encouraged to choose a certificate program and participate over the course of your four-year college career. Not sure where to start? Consider the Fullbridge Professional Edge program as the first step in completing the certificate.
