Certificate Programs in Business for Non-degree Students

The Lubin School of Business offers a number of certificate programs for non-degree adult students whose educational objectives can best be met by short-term concentrated study in business. The curricula for the certificate programs are drawn from Lubin's undergraduate business courses. Admission to the certificate programs in business, with the exception of the certificate program in business studies, requires the completion of 64 college credits or the equivalent. Completion of ENG 101-102 or the equivalent is a prerequisite for all certificate programs in business. In special cases, prerequisites may be waived for students who have equivalent knowledge or preparation.
