Graduate Certificate in Business Administration


This program is accredited by: AACSB. More information can be found at: unlv.edu/provost/vpaa/accreditation

Plan Description


The Lee Business School MBA Programs office recognizes that many admitted UNLV degree-seeking graduate students would like to obtain advanced knowledge in business administration and are unable to commit to a full MBA degree program. The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (GCBA) demonstrates the individual’s desire to master his/her professional field and seek new knowledge about business administration. To earn this certificate, students must complete five core, functional business areas. These areas pertain to accounting, economics, finance, management, and marketing. All coursework from this GCBA can be applied toward an MBA, should students choose to pursue an MBA at the Lee Business School in the future.
