Benefits of graduate certificates
Graduate certificates can provide:
- A stand-alone option to gain specialized knowledge of a business function in order to further your career and enhance your resume.
- A preliminary step in starting a master's degree program; all credits taken as part of a graduate certificate may be subsequently applied towards an MBA or relevant MS degree.
- An opportunity for Lindner MBA and MS students to add even more value to their degree*.
*Degree-seeking students must still apply for admission to the desired graduate certificate program. Please contact your academic advisor to apply.
