This certificate provides the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to both new and professionals and experienced managers who have learned “on the job” to perform their jobs effectively and advance in their careers. The certificate requires fifteen credits of graduate business coursework, and is available to students with an undergraduate degree in any discipline. Twelve of the fifteen credits are in required courses that develop core competencies common to all managerial positions. Students elect a fifth course to address their own individual functional areas of interest. All of the credits completed in the certificate would be fully transferrable to the MBA degree at Adelphi should a student decide to pursue an MBA.
** Should the Advanced Certificate in Management be offered on a cohort basis at an off-campus location, a sponsoring company or organization may, with respect to the fifth course, (i) allow the students in the cohort to take any of the above elective courses in sections offered on the Garden City campus, (ii) in consultation with the WSB, select any one of the courses to be required for all students in the cohort, or (iii) require all students in the cohort to take a graduate-level Special Topics course to be developed with the agreement of the WSB and approved according to its customary procedures.
