Study Options

To earn a certificate, students must complete:
1) Required courses
2) A choice of elective courses
3) Required international experience component*

*The Certificate requirements for BBA students are more extensive than the requirements for iBBA students because BBAs lack the international business content of the iBBA program’s core courses. However, both BBA and iBBA students must take some of the same required Certificate courses.
