Graduate certificates are available to students who have already completed a bachelor’s degree (not necessarily in a business field) at a regionally accredited institution and have demonstrated their admissibility to the graduate certificate program. Certificates are also available to students with a graduate degree from any field. The application process will vary based on the student’s academic background. Students in the graduate certificate program are subject to the same Standards of Performance as all admitted graduate students. The only exception is that certificate students may be placed on academic probation as soon as their cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0 regardless of the number of credit hours completed towards the certificate program. For additional information or an application for the certificate program, please contact the College of Business Graduate Office at 719-255-3408, or see the Graduate Certificate web site: www.uccs.edu/mba.
Graduate certificates consist of 12 credit hours (4 classes) of coursework beyond any prerequisites. Certificates are offered in accounting, finance, health care administration, innovation management, international business, management, marketing, operations management, project management, and service management. Certificates are available both on-campus and online, but all certificates may not be available in both formats.
