The Certificate of Management is patterned after a traditional MBA degree program. Topics are designed to cover business/management functions and the essential concepts, tools and resources learned in an MBA program. As a self-paced online program, this “Mini-MBA” program does not attempt to deliver the depth of learning found in a traditional degree program but focuses on the most critical “need-to-know” elements in order to enhance a manager’s abilities to manage and lead in their organization.
