We evaluate candidates on their academic background, career accomplishments and the thoughtfulness and candor within their application. Ultimately, we look for driven professionals and entrepreneurs with business and management potential.
Once admitted, you may begin study at your convenience. The program is self-paced, typically completed in a 3-4 month timeframe.
Tuition for the Essentials of Management Certificate is $1500 USD. Our fees are more affordable than traditional programs thanks to our innovative model that charges companies to hire students in our optional career network.
