Graduate Finance Certificate

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Welcome to this noncredit certificate program, which we designed for corporate professionals with demanding schedules who wish to learn about topics such as financial markets, financial statement analysis, international corporate finance, insurance and risk management, investment anomalies, and funding company growth. We have found that a college degree or extensive business experience lead to the most successful experience for the student. Almost all of our students have undergraduate degrees, a few have master's degrees, and the occasional student has a Ph.D. We have also drawn a number of M.D.'s over the years. The typical student has little or no background in finance and accounting but desires to add these skills to their portfolio. We also get a number of students with MBA's who are interested in either a refresher course or to specialize in finance. We have drawn participants from both the for-profit and the not-for-profit worlds, including a number in local government. Information about fees, group discounts, early payment discounts and other payment options is available on our website.


SMU Cox is an AACSB accredited institution but this certificate program is a non-credit class.
