For professionals seeking to enhance their business background, each concentration is also offered as a nine-credit graduate certificate. Non-degree-seeking students pursuing a certificate follow the same enrollment requirements as those seeking admission to the online MBA program.
Current Washington State University MBA students, upon acceptance and declaring a concentration, can earn a certificate in marketing, finance, international business, or hospitality business management simply by completing the three corresponding electives that are already included in their curriculum.
Washington State University MBA alumni are encouraged to build on their credentials by earning an MBA certificate. If you have already taken one of the corresponding electives, you may be eligible to use those credits toward your certificate, provided you are accepted into the program and have graduated within the past six years.
Students who are not yet ready to commit to earning their MBA are invited to apply to the program and pursue any of the four MBA certificates.
