Enhance your leadership skills with intensive, short-term training
Ongoing professional development can help accelerate your career advancement. That’s where our Graduate Business Certificates come in. These short-term online certificates offer MBA-level coursework designed to give you long-term skills and knowledge.
Whether you want to advance in your current role, add a specialization to your previously earned master’s degree, formalize skills you’ve picked up through work experience, or desire to prepare for entering a new industry sector, GMercyU offers a program that can help.
Our Graduate Business Certificates are also stackable. This means that if you choose to earn your MBA after completing one or more certificates, the credits can be applied towards earning your MBA from GMercyU.
Our Graduate Business Certificates are designed for mid-career professionals who hold a bachelor’s degree or a master’s from a regionally-accredited college or university. We offer five options.
Graduate Business Certificate – Strategic Management
This certificate culminates in the ability to develop and implement a competitive strategic plan. Coursework focuses on disciplines such as managerial finance, human resource management, and more.
Graduate Business Certificate – Healthcare Administration
Build your knowledge of finance, personnel, and operational issues specific to healthcare organizations with a focus on helping practitioners offer effective, efficient quality care.
Graduate Business Certificate – Leadership
The Leadership business certificate helps managers, supervisors, and future executives or entrepreneurs hone their abilities to make strategic decisions, motivate teams, and create the conditions for long-term growth and innovation.
While our business certificate programs do not result in a degree, they do involve graduate-level study. We expect applicants to meet MBA admission standards.
To apply, you must:
- Hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally-accredited institution.
- Submit official transcripts from all previously attended institutions, current resume, and two letters of recommendation.
- Demonstrate achievement of a minimum GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. If below a 3.0, you will be required to submit a personal statement as part of your application.
