Graduate Certificate in Business Administration

Do you want to increase your understanding of business practices and gain some foundational skills and tools to lead organizations or business? If so, a graduate certificate in business administration can provide you with the tools you need to take the next step in your career. 

The graduate certificate in business administration is a subset of EMU’s MBA program and is designed to provide administrative skills and tools to professionals who seek, or find themselves in, organizational leadership roles.
