Graduate Certificates

The College of Business Administration offers two graduate certificates. These certificates are completed on-line through the K-State Global Campus. The credits earned can be applied towards the completion of our face-to-face MBA.

Graduate Certificate in Business Administration

This certificate program gives students the opportunity to gain knowledge on the functional areas of business administration. Students must complete five business courses, a total of 15 credits, and maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics

In response to the growing demand for educational resources and skill development in the mining, management and interpretation of “Big Data,” a 15-credit-hour online graduate certificate program is offered to enable students to increase their knowledge and to prepare them for expanding opportunities in this high demand area. The certificate will offer courses in both data science and data analytics to enable students to learn how to mine and effectively communicate the meanings of large data sets.

The area of Data Analytics is broad, and the skill needs of professionals in this area span both technical data science capabilities and applied data analytics capabilities. As such, the certificate brings together courses that are foundational to knowledge and skill development in both data sciences and applied data analytics, in order to provide alternatives to develop a personalized plan to meet the needs of individual students in the program. 

Graduate Certificate in Organizational Leadership

This program offers the opportunity to enhance creative abilities, help develop technical skills and knowledge of business trends to move into a higher-level leadership position in a professional career.  Students must complete 15 credits and maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
