Gain the confidence to make informed financial decisions

Accounting is a foundation of any successful business venture. Individuals with the knowledge and experience to make informed financial decisions are highly valued contributors in businesses across the globe.

In the Graduate Certificate in Accounting and Financial Decision Making you will have the opportunity to explore topics such as financial risk management, value creation, and information analysis. Exposure to decision making theory will assist your conceptual understanding of how investors, money managers, and corporate managers make economic and financial decisions.

Study on your own terms. Courses are offered on weeknights Monday–Thursday on our Boston campus, or 100% online. You can choose to enroll in a class just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester. International students must complete five courses over an eight-month period (two semesters) to be visa compliant.

Start your graduate certificate at a time that works for you. You can enter the program in September, January, or May. International students who are studying on an F-1 visa can enter in either May or September.

Build toward something more. The Graduate Certificate in Accounting and Financial Decision Making is a unique opportunity to quickly gain fundamental business knowledge and earn a graduate-level credential from a top 40 U.S. Research University, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. And that’s just the beginning.

When you are ready to pursue a full graduate degree at Northeastern University, the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible D’Amore-McKim master’s programs, including our Part-Time MBA and Online MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-impacting graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
