The Certificate and Diploma Programs
If a four-year BBA is not the right program for you, you can still earn a solid business education with academic credentials in two other programs: certificate and diploma. You can also take these programs in sequence, earning the appropriate credential, as you work toward your BBA degree. This gives you the opportunity to earn your degree with less of an up-front financial or time commitment.
The Certificate in Business Administration consists of 6.0 units in business administration. When you complete the program, you will have a basic understanding of the core business functions of management, marketing and accounting, with an appreciation of how business interacts with the economy.
The Diploma in Business Administration consists of 12.0 units of study. This program gives you the basic understanding and more. If you have earned a Certificate in Business Administration, you can enter this program and earn your diploma just by completing the additional 6.0 units of study. Once you have your Diploma in Business Administration, you can get your BBA by completing another 8.0 units of study.
