We’re looking for people who want to change things for the better and want to change them now! If you’d like to become a better business person without a long-term business school commitment, our Graduate Certificate could be just right for you. This Certificate is designed to meet the needs of professionals who intend to take their organizations to the next level. 

It’s practical. The Graduate Certificate program is a value-added feature of the PURI School of Business, providing an advanced-level business series for professionals who want stronger business skills, but aren’t necessarily thinking MBA. It’s comprised of three courses  MBA courses in a concentration, each designed to build and improve upon your skills. Classes are kept small to allow you to share with other students and learn from their management experiences.

Choose from a Graduate Certificate with a concentration in Finance, Healthcare Administration, and Project Management. 

It’s convenient. Courses are scheduled with the needs of working professionals in mind. All are offered at least once a year and run for 15-16 weeks in the fall and spring and for eight weeks in the summer. Evening on-campus and online courses are available.

The benefits. If you own your own business, you’ll run it more effectively. If you work for someone else, you’ll be a more valuable employee. And if you happen to fall in love with the program, all your certificate credits will apply toward earning your MBA at Rockford University.

As a business leader, you have the power to promote astonishing changes–in your business, in your community, and in your world. If that sounds exciting to you, please contact us.
