Global Management & Decision Making, Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (Beginning Fall 2023)

Businesses operate globally and there is an increasing demand for managers who can work in a global environment. As decision-making is a key task performed by managers, business decisions need to be made ethically and should be data-driven.

Accordingly, business managers should be familiar with operations and technology as the role of technology will be increasingly common in managing business. This certificate prepares business managers to work professionally, and ethically, and make data-driven decisions.

Admission Requirements
