Advanced Graduate Certificate in Finance

The 18-credit Advanced Graduate Certificate (AGC) in Finance prepares students for careers in financial management, including financial analysis, portfolio management, investment banking and corporate financial associate positions. The curriculum places an emphasis on developing financial analytical skills. It offers in-depth knowledge of the principles and techniques of finance and accounting needed to understand how corporate financial objectives are developed, measured and reported, as well as the central issues in government regulation, taxation and financial reporting. 

The AGC in Finance is a part-time program designed for working professionals. All courses are scheduled in the evening, and several of them are offered completely online.

University Badges
As they progress through the program, AGC students may earn University Badges — digital credentials that recognize the knowledge and skills developed by successfully completing two-course sequences in specialized areas (see details). The University Badge may be displayed on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter profiles, and added to a resume to bring visibility to your achievement.

MBA Program
Certificate students may choose to pursue admission into the University's MBA in Finance program, which has a separate application and additional admissions requirements. Students interested in the MBA program must apply prior to completing 12 credits in the certificate program. Acceptance into the MBA program is not guaranteed, but certificate credits are transferable into the MBA program.
