Investment Management 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 Investment Management is aimed primarily, although not exclusively, at the financial services industry, including such courses as Investments and Portfolio Management.

 

Curriculum

The Investment Management certificate is made up of two pre-requisites (3 credit hours), plus two core courses (6 credit hours), and at least two electives (6 semester credits), depending on program affiliation and prior coursework.
