Our 100% online graduate certificate programs are powerful professional development tools, allowing you to develop business and management knowledge in a flexible format. Much of the online graduate certificate curriculum represents foundational and core courses offered in our MBA and master's (MS) programs, and classes are taught by renowned Daniels School of Business faculty.
An online graduate certificate will not only enhance your impact on your company or organization – it is a small step toward a giant leap: pursuing a graduate business degree.
Each online graduate certificate program can serve as a specialization for our business online MBA/MS students — students in these programs are able to dual count their earned credits for the degree and a certificate, if they overlap (dependent on degree). Credit hours earned in our online graduate certificate programs are transferable to graduate degree programs (application and academic requirements apply). However, no credits will be allowed to be transferred from another institution to fulfill certificate requirements. Current Purdue online graduate students should submit online graduate certificate applications after they have completed their first semester but before their last semester at Purdue University.
Business online graduate certificate programs admit students two to three times a year (January, May, August). This flexibility allows you to work at your own pace, which we recognize is important for working professionals.
New student applicants can be admitted to only one online graduate certificate program in their first semester
When applicable, core courses in online graduate certificates should be taken as soon as possible. As some courses in our online graduate certificate programs are only offered at specific times, students may have breaks or GAP(s) in their program where there are no applicable courses to be taken during a semester/module.
All Business online graduate certificate programs are priced at $1,068.80 per credit hour with fees for in-state students and $1,118.80 per credit hour with fees for out-of-state and international students.
Alumni, military, and employees of Purdue's West Lafayette campus can take their next giant leap by enhancing their skills with a Purdue master’s degree.
