Graduate Certificates

Certificates in business at the graduate level offer an opportunity to pursue a specific skill set in an in-depth and focused manner.

MBA Certificates are designed to work in tandem with the Working Professional MBA program, but may also be taken as a “stand-alone.”  Some certificates require a previous MBA while others may be taken with only a bachelor’s degree.  Prerequisites for each certificate program vary and must be taken in addition to the concentration courses.

Current students in the MBA program are encouraged, but not required, to complete a certificate. Certificates provide official recognition on their transcript of an area of study.  All of the certificates require 12 credit hours. You must apply by July 1 or Dec. 1. 

The School of Business offers the following certificates:

Current KU MBA students are required to apply for a certificate in advance of taking applicable courses. The deadlines to apply are July 1 and Dec. 1.
