MBA Pathway Certificate

Power Your Career with our New Master of Business Administration Pathway Certificate

A graduate certificate can boost your earnings by an average of 25% — Washington Post

The part-time MBA Pathway is a one-year, six-course, 18-credit graduate business certificate that lets you fast-track your transition to the master of business administration program at the Cotsakos College of Business. Credits earned in the MBA Pathway can be applied to the MBA program. There is no GMAT or GRE test requirement; we welcome any undergraduate major and do not consider your undergraduate GPA if you have three or more years of professional work experience. It is the perfect transition for working professionals who wish to ease back into academic life, while still pursuing—and accelerating—their careers.

Upon successful completion of this certificate, students are then eligible to waive the GMAT/GRE requirement for admission into the part-time MBA or full-time MBA program, and choose an area of concentration for their MBA: Accounting CPA track, Entrepreneurship, FinanceGeneral Management, Human Resource Management, Marketing, or Music Management. With the MBA Pathway Certificate, you will then be required to complete only 10 more classes to earn your MBA.
