Certificate Programs

The Krannert School of Management offers a variety of certificate options that allow students to take classes in smaller packaged bundles. These may serve as professional development opportunities, small steps toward pursuing a graduate business degree, or simply a path to develop business and management acumen. Each certificate program targets working professionals in a broad range of industries seeking a business credential to strengthen their resume as they consider the move into mid-management or team lead roles within their respective industries. Each certificate serves as a specialization for our Online MBA/MS students, creating an option for students in a Graduate Certificate program to transfer credits into an existing online MS/MBA degree program. However, no credits will be allowed to be transferred from another institution to fulfill certificate requirements.

With applications that can serve across a wide range of industries, Krannert business certificates are a great option to enhance a professional’s impact on an organization’s goals. Many of the courses listed represent Foundational and Core courses offered in all of our MBA/MS programs. In addition to certification, these certificate programs allow transferable credits for students already admitted to other Krannert degree programs.

Most Krannert Graduate Certificate programs admit students 1 to 3 times a year (January, May, August), and all online courses are offered in asynchronous format. Courses run 7 weeks in length, which provides students the opportunity to take one course per module or semester. This flexibility allows students to work at their own pace, important for working professionals. Most programs can be completed in less than a year to 18 months. Most Graduate Certificate programs allow 3 years maximum time for completion. Students must complete all courses required for certification and earn at least a 3.00 GPA to be awarded the certificate.
