Certificate Programs
Certificate of Honor

The School of Management currently offers one academic certificate program, which is detailed below. This is in addition to a number of professional courses that the school offers for the purpose of credentialing or certification. These professional courses are offered in diverse areas, including accounting, treasury, and payroll, among others, in partnership with several national associations.

Advanced Certificate Program in Human Resources Management

The Advanced Certificate Programs in Human Resources Management is designed for managers, union leaders, and others who require a knowledge of legal, behavioral, organizational principles, and practices of employee and labor relations and human resources management.

Admission Policies

Persons interested in enrolling in the Advanced Certificate Program must submit an application to the Graduate Admissions Office. The applicant must meet all admissions criteria for the Master of Science in Human Resources Management and Labor Relations academic program.

Applicants will be notified in writing of their acceptance or rejection for the advanced certificate program. Since the admissions process takes approximately one month after the receipt of all required materials, interested persons are advised to apply well in advance of the semester in which they wish to enroll. New students may begin in the fall, spring, or summer semester.

Academic Standards/Academic Probation and Dismissal

These policies are identical to those for students enrolled in the MSHR/LR academic program.

Required Courses

The required sequence of courses for each advanced certificate is described below. The sequence of required and elective courses provides the student with the essential knowledge of each field and the opportunity to tailor the certificate program to their specific professional needs. Substitution of alternative courses may be permitted only where the student has successfully completed an equivalent graduate course or for an equally significant reason and only with the approval of a faculty adviser.
