Become an ethical leader in your company with the support of the Business Ethics certificate program. The certificate explores ethical issues in business and the challenges of managing corporate ethics programs.

The Graduate Certificate in Business Ethics has been developed as a flexible course of study for:

  • Ethics professionals who develop and implement corporate ethics programs
  • Academics who seek to teach and do research in business ethics
  • Others who seek a greater knowledge of business ethics to enhance their careers

The certificate requires completion of three to four courses.

Degree-seeking MBA and other graduate business students: Qualify for the certificate by completing three business ethics courses in the Quinlan School of Business.

Non-degree-seeking students: Qualify for the certificate after completing three business ethics courses and one additional Quinlan School of Business course that fits your interests and is approved for credit by the director of the program. All courses completed in the Business Ethics certificate program can be applied toward a Quinlan MBA degree.
