(Purchase, NY May 15, 2017) As the U.S. economy gains momentum, employees seek a means to upgrade their careers, increase their knowledge or switch careers. Employers look for cost effective ways to retain their workforce and train for more cross functional roles within their business divisions. Advanced graduate certificates meet both these requirements, and the Manhattanville School of Business has been approved to offer six new graduate level certificates in business starting fall 2017.
These professionally focused graduate advanced certificates will be offered in the following disciplines: business leadership, finance, human resource management, international management, marketing communication management and sport business management.
“Specialized advanced certificates and master’s degrees are in great demand by employers because they offer focused knowledge in a given business discipline. They are a great option for diverse levels of employees; those looking to deepen their knowledge in a specific subject area, those seeking to gain a new area of expertise and credential, and those needing to update their skills,” said Steve Albanese, interim dean of the School of Business. “Advanced certificates also provide learning opportunities for those who already have a master’s degree or for those students looking to try a few classes before committing to an entire degree”.
Advanced certificates serve as a standalone credential or the 12 required credits (four classes) may be applied toward its respective Master of Science degree, if the degree requirements are completed within five years. Students must meet the same admissions requirements as those seeking their master’s degree at the School of Business.
