Graduate Certificate in Business Administration Campus programs may appeal to executives and non-business students alike. Whether you are looking for a post-bachelor’s or post-master’s business certificate program, there are a variety of options depending on your goals and ambitions. Graduate certificate programs in business administration provide instruction in management, accounting, marketing and finance. Studying in a social learning environment might also increase your opportunity to develop communication and strategic team-building skills through interaction and participation.
Campus Graduate Certificate in Business Administration Campus Programs: Basics
Graduate Certificate in Business Administration Campus programs are available as both business preparation or Pre-MBA as well as Executive Business Administration programs for experienced professionals. Since the course content is structured differently depending on whether you are coming from a field other than business or you are interested in advanced credentials and recognition, requisite education may vary. While they are geared for students with a Bachelor’s degree, in some instances students may need to have completed specific undergraduate coursework (accounting, statistics, economics).

The other variable is duration. Some business administration graduate certificates take one year, others 16 or 18 months, others 3 years. This fact is partly based on the business school, and partly on you – how many courses you enroll in and complete per session, and whether you attend on a part-time or full-time basis.
