International Business Graduate Certificate

The International Business certificate exposes students to issues in global business, such as cultural differences in management and business practices, economic, political, and regulatory constraints to business practices, differences in customer and market characteristics, etc. A sound understanding of these principles becomes increasingly important as one moves up the career ladder, into more managerial and administrative roles.

This certificate will help students to leverage their deep technical, clinical, or creative background for success in the world of global business. It will teach them research and analytic techniques for managing individual and organizational performance in global business.



The certificate is made up of 12 semester credits, consisting of one core course (2 semester credits) and four to five elective courses (10 semester credits).
