Secure Your Core Business Skills

The Business Foundations Certificate program focuses on core business skills and knowledge necessary to understand the structure and operations of contemporary organizations.

The goal of this certificate is to provide the student with these fundamental business skills and knowledge required to successfully enter and participate in today's business enterprises (either for-profit or non-profit organizations).

The Business Foundations Certificate Program is ideal for:

  • Non-business graduate students who want to enhance their master's studies with business foundations courses.
  • Non-business students looking to enter the professional MBA or international MBA program.
  • Non-business students looking to enter the MS Computer Science Information Systems program.
  • Non-business undergraduate students who will graduate in May, and would like to continue their studies through summer (via the certificate program) to enhance their bachelor's degree.

Applicants that are applying to the Business Foundations Certificate program in order to complete pre-requisites for the professional MBA program should first contact Candace Wilhelm at 910.962.3903 or
