Micro MBA Certificate Program

Micro MBA Program students in classThe Micro MBA is a certificate program that was developed for individuals who want or need a rapid foundational education in the principles of business. It does more than just present the basics; it helps people synthesize and integrate ideas and information across a variety of important business concepts from accounting to finance to information technology to marketing. The program breaks down all the key areas of business and builds a robust, usable framework to provide the skills and confidence necessary to make effective administrative decisions.

Unlike some certificate programs, the Micro MBA at PC is taught exclusively by faculty selected based on their extensive academic and real-world experience. These award-winning faculty, combined with the resources of a Bloomberg Businessweek-ranked business school, provides students with a varied and incredibly informative experience.
