Gain the confidence to make informed financial decisions

Accounting and financial decision making skills are the 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.

Just-in-Time Learning. The Graduate Certificate in Accounting and Financial Decision Making is designed to give you training that you can use immediately. The skills you learn in an evening class will be useful to you the next morning at work. At D’Amore-McKim School of Business, you won’t find theoretical training for a theoretical future—you’ll have the opportunity to gain practical, real-world knowledge rooted in the realities of working life.

Study on your own terms. The Graduate Certificate in Accounting and Financial Decision Making has been designed with working professionals in mind. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays on our Boston campus and 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.

Start your Graduate Certificate in Accounting and Financial Decision Making 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 50 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—now or in the future—the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible master’s programs, including our Part-Time MBA and Online MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
