The Lubin School of Business offers the General Business certificate program for students whose educational objectives can best be met by short-term concentrated study in General Business. The curricula for the certificate programs are drawn from Lubin's undergraduate business courses. (These certificates are for undergraduate non-degree students. For post-graduate students, see the Advance Graduate Program certificates. For professional certificates, please visit the Office of Adult and Continuing Education.)
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: The undergraduate certificate programs are only open to non-degree adult students. Admission to the certificate programs in business, with the exception of the certificate program in business studies, requires junior standing (the completion of 64 college credits) or the equivalent. Completion of ENG 101-102 or the equivalent is a prerequisite for all certificate programs in business. Some certificate programs require students to also meet specific course prerequisite requirements. In special cases, prerequisites may be waived for students who have equivalent knowledge or preparation.
TRANSFER CREDITS: Students may transfer only one course (excluding ENG 101-102) completed with a grade of "C" or better to a certificate program. The acceptance of transfer credit to a specific certificate program is determined by the appropriate Lubin department.
GRADE REQUIREMENTS: A Pace University certificate is awarded upon completion of each program with an average of "C" or better. Application for the certificate should be made to the Office of Student Accounts and Registrar Services prior to completion of the program. In general, courses completed for a business certificate program may be applied to the BBA.
