The Certificate in Finance enables students to enhance their ability to make financial decisions anchored in corporate finance and investments/portfolio analysis, the core areas of the discipline, while supplementing their knowledge with additional complementary electives of their choosing.
Optional: Finance Pre-Qualifier (BMBA 8013 Finance Pre-Qualifier) for students who either have no finance background or who feel they need to invigorate their finance backgrounds. Additional Pre-Qualifiers may be needed – BMBA 8018 Mathematics Pre-Qualifier (Math), BMBA 8019 Statistics Pre-Qualifier (Statistics), BMBA 8020 ITM Pre-Qualifier - Software Personal Productivity Tools (IT), depending on the individual's background.
Students completing the Certificate in Finance who are subsequently admitted to the M.B.A. program are eligible to apply all certificate courses to fulfill M.B.A. degree elective requirements.
Because the certificate is not a degree, students who complete the certificate program do not participate in University Commencement Exercises.
