The Providence College School of Business offers two types of certificate programs. Graduate certificate programs consist of credit-bearing, graduate-level courses. Most of these programs require three courses (9 credit hours) and some may entail an internship/equivalent work experience, a capstone project, or other requirement. These courses may be applied to a PC MBA, should you choose to pursue one. Please see the details of each program for course offerings and application deadlines.
The MicroMBA certificate programs are non-credit short-courses and provide a rapid, foundational education in the principles of today’s business.
All Providence College School of Business certificate programs are taught by PC faculty who are recognized as experts in their field. These programs are flexible and feature a variety of course meeting times, including some online and hybrid classes.
