The Business Foundations Certificate is designed to meet the needs of professional adults who are seeking to develop their business skills. Many professionals hold degrees in non-business fields and need to gain knowledge and up-to-date tools in the business area.

Working professionals have limited time; and in an effort to better serve our students, these courses are available completely online. The courses will sharpen skills and strengthen value in the workplace. The Business Foundations Certificate also provides the opportunity to begin a graduate degree with the Godbold School of Business. The three courses taken to complete the Certificate satisfy the prerequisites needed to begin the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and International Master of Business Administration (IMBA) programs.
