Advanced Graduate Certificate Program in
Industrial Management

Managers and knowledge workers face the challenges of rapid change, evolving technology and burgeoning information in today's global economy. This program's goals are to enable individuals to understand the integration of an enterprise's processes, as well as how to utilize modern tools, techniques and technologies to make their organization more competitive and profitable. The curriculum introduces the strategic fundamentals of the customer/value driven enterprise, the management concepts of organizational design and structure, and the basic business processes for running a successful enterprise.

The program is offered in conjunction with the Department of Technology and Society and articulates with its MS in Technological Systems Management as well as SPD's Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. Matriculation in either of these master's degree programs requires a separate application.

Timeline
All certificate requirements must be completed within three (3) years from the semester date of admission as a matriculated student. NOTE: If the certificate program is taken in collaboration with a graduate degree program, then the student has five years for completion of the certificate.

NOTE: When a student is admitted or readmitted to an SPD degree or certificate program, students may petition SPD to have Stony Brook University graduate level courses that are older than five (5) years, and no older than 10 years, individually evaluated by the appropriate academic department/faculty to determine if the credits may be applied toward current SPD degree/certificate requirements. Grades in such courses must be "B" or better. (B- grades are ineligible for review.) For transfer credits from external institutions, please see guidelines at: www.stonybrook.edu/spd/assets/pdf/transferform.pdf (PDF).
