Functional Specializations and Graduate Certificates

One-year MBA students may choose from a selection of functional specializations or graduate certificates that align with their interests and career goals. By completing coursework in a chosen area of interest, students are able to customize their MBA to their needs and preferred area of career focus. Each student may select one functional specialization or one graduate certificate. Students may also take a selection of electives beyond the functional specialization or graduate certificate to further customize their coursework to their interests and career goals.

*A functional specialization is NOT noted in the graduate’s diploma nor in the transcript. It solely serves as a recommendation from the Department as the best course of action to earn the desired knowledge to develop a career in a specific functional area of business.

**Graduate certificates serve as a tool for graduates to demonstrate knowledge on a specific business skill. Graduate certificates are noted in the graduate’s transcript. Graduates also received a separate diploma awarding a “Post-Bachelor Certificate” in the specific area of knowledge.
