Advance your career and grow your professional network with a Graduate Certificate in Foundations of Business.

Get Started

The Foundations of Business Graduate Certificate Program consists of six, two-credit courses, and is designed to provide students with a non-business undergraduate degree with a thorough knowledge of the traditional functional areas of business that an undergraduate business degree offers. 

Students should consider enrolling in the program if they want to strengthen their knowledge of the six key business functional areas to enhance their managerial skills, or are considering applying to the MBA program but lack the requisite undergraduate academic preparation.

For a sample course of study and the latest course information please consult the UMass Lowell online Graduate Academic Catalog.
