It's all about the money! A Finance Certificate will empower you to ask and answer questions like, "Will this project add value to my corporation?" You will get an overview of money markets and the global financial environment, enabling you to make corporate decisions strategically. You will delve deeper into investments and learn the inner workings of futures and options. To top it off, you will take a capstone course that brings all of the Finance Certificate courses together. This is a popular certificate because students see the value it will add to their careers.

Certificate courses may not be taken while completing graduate degree courses. Students may apply appropriate certificate courses toward the completion of a master's degree if financial aid was not used to help pay tuition and other fees; and if the certificate courses are transferred before completion of the certificate. Students cannot transfer certificate courses toward a Master's Degree after the awarding of the certificate. Consult the Course Catalog for details.
