Corporate Finance Graduate Certificate

Finance is clearly one of the foundational disciplines in business. There is the financial services industry that creates demand for finance professionals – this sector includes banks, insurance companies, brokerage and investment companies, and others that sell finance-based services. In addition, every business needs its own in-house professionals to manage the many financial decisions that must be made on an ongoing basis, such as capital budget allocations, developing strategies to raise and manage equity, long-term debt, and working capital, and investing the cash the business raises.

The Graduate Certificate in Corporate Finance is aimed primarily at the latter market, including courses in Corporate Finance and Advanced Capital Budgeting.

 

Curriculum

The Corporate Finance certificate includes two pre-requisites (3 credit hours), 2 core courses (5 semester credits) and at least three elective courses (7 semester credits), depending on program affiliation and prior background.
