Business Concentration Certificates

Perhaps you earned your degree 15-years ago and need to develop new competencies to supplement your education? Or maybe you're a working professional looking to alter your career path?

Enhance your education by earning a certificate in one of these business concentrations: Marketing, Management, Finance, Business Technology, Human Resources Management, Project Management, and Meeting and Event Planning. Concentrations are either fully online or are in a hybrid format, in which students meet one night a week in the classroom and all other work is completed online.

To earn a certificate in one of our business concentrations, you must complete all four courses within your selected concentration.

Keep in mind some concentrations may require completion of prerequisite courses before you may begin. Students must take the concentration courses in the sequence identified below. Exceptions must be approved by the MAP Executive Director and the MAP Director of Educational Services.
