Certificate in Business

Certificates

The Certificate in Business provides information, skills, and resources to function effectively in a business setting. The course work addresses core competencies including accounting, marketing, and management, as well as in-demand skills such as budgeting, business analysis, business process, and procurement.

The Certificate in Business is a strong complement to any undergraduate degree program in University College, emphasizing the applied value of a liberal arts education. The Certificate in Business may also be pursued on a stand-alone basis for individuals seeking professional development.


Undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs offered by University College are offered through Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. Business-related programs in University College are not accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
