Certificate Program

The COES Professional Program (CPP) complements a Holy Cross liberal arts education by enabling students to connect their education and experience to the marketplace through six milestones:

1 > BUSINESS WORKSHOPS
Beginning with the Fullbridge Professional Edge, explore areas of business through in-depth workshops from finance to entrepreneurship and sales.

2 > EXCEL TUTORIAL:
Learn advanced Excel skills in this workshop – what every analyst must know. Discover the power of pivot tables, explore Excel’s most useful functions and simplify data analysis with tools and charts.

3 > INTERNSHIP:
Ideal for liberal arts students, internships provide business world experience in an industry specific to your career goals. In addition to Holy Cross, explore your personal network for opportunities.

4 > RECOMMENDED HC COURSES:
Check out our list of recommended HC Courses that can help you expand your business skills. Speak with your advisor. Complete three.

5 > JOB SHADOWING:
An accessible exploration of business careers in your preferred industry. In addition to the Alumni Job Shadowing Program, explore your personal network for opportunities. 

6 > BUSINESS CLUB PARTICIPATION:
Get involved and join one of several business clubs to pursue your interests and find valuable networking opportunities with students and alumni.

Students who complete all six milestones will receive a  Certificate of Readiness.
