The Certificate in Business Administration (CBA) is a flexible full-time or part-time program that provides a foundation of core business knowledge and a diverse range of elective courses so you can tailor your business education to fit your needs. Multiple course types—from online courses to face-to-face courses to intensive one-week workshops—mean you can complete the program on your terms and your own schedule. You’ll leave this program with an effective working knowledge of the analytical tools and vital management concepts used in modern business, as well as grounding in the practical skills, values and perspectives required for success in a changing world.
Students may apply for the program before they register in courses, or take individual courses for professional development and decide to enroll in the program at a later date.
The CBA program can also be completed by taking the CBA – Fast Track option, which is a full-time 12-week program held on campus. Find the right business program to suit your needs with our helpful comparison chart.
