The 15 credit hour certificates provide a framework for professional development that challenges students to find innovative solutions to marketplace opportunities.
To be unconditionally accepted into the Post-Graduate Certificate Program a learner must hold a conferred Graduate Degree from an accredited institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council of Higher Education Accreditation.
Transfer Credits The MBA Post-Graduate Certificate Program will accept up to three relevant graduate credits from institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council of Higher Education Accreditation. This would require that 12 additional credits be completed through UIU.
A graduate student will have five years after initial enrollment in the first graduate level course to complete the certificate program under the requirements in effect at the time of enrollment. If program requirements change, the student can elect to complete the revised curriculum or to complete under the original curriculum.
If the student does not complete the certificate program within the five-year period, the requirements in effect at the time of the next enrollment will be used to determine the student’s certificate requirements.
