Blaze a Path to Your Part-Time MBA
Build your foundational business knowledge and get on the fast track towards earning your MBA. The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration’s Part-Time MBA Path will give you the foundational skills you need to make an immediate impact on your career, while earning credits that you may apply to a future master’s degree.
What are you waiting for?
Does this sound like you? You’re as busy as you are ambitious. You know that your career would benefit from business education, but embarking on an intensive full-time program just doesn’t feel realistic right now. Your schedule is tight. You have no time to study for the GMAT or work through applications. And besides, you need new skills right away if you’re going to get ahead in your career—you don’t lose out on opportunities.
We have your solution: the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration’s Part-Time MBA Path. This six-course program provides a finance and management-focused business foundation. You’ll enroll in D’Amore-McKim master’s courses, so you will experience graduate business coursework before enrolling in a full degree program.
Advance Your Career−Starting Now.
The Part-Time MBA program is designed to help you develop the skills you need without any delay.
Learn skills that you can apply to your career, immediately. The lessons you learn in class on Thursday night will spill out of the classroom and be useful Friday morning at the office, and a professional credential will bolster your professional profile. At the same time, you will be gaining experience in a graduate business classroom, allowing you to better evaluate whether continuing on to a master’s program is the right choice for you.
Class schedules will work with your busy professional life. Classes are offered Monday through Thursday evenings at 5:20 and 7:30 p.m. Or take morning or afternoon classes every other Saturday. You can even take one course online. Finish your certificate in as little as three semesters or spread out your course load over as long as three years.
Once you have completed your certificate, you will be better prepared to make an informed decision about your educational future. If you are interested in continuing on to a master’s degree, your certificate will give you a head start. If you apply and are accepted to an eligible D’Amore-McKim master’s program, such as the Part-Time MBA, the credits you’ve earned during your certificate program will apply. Not only that, but your performance in the courses can make you eligible to waive the GMAT requirement. Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.3 and a “B” or better in each of your certificate classes, and we’ll waive the GRE/GMAT requirement.
If you complete your certificate and decide not to pursue a further degree, that is okay too! Your Graduate Certificate is a valuable standalone credential. If you decide later on that a master’s degree makes sense for you, your eligibility to waive the GMAT or apply credits earned will be good for up five years after completing your certificate.
I was looking for MBA programs that were well-positioned in the rankings. I got in touch with D’Amore-McKim, and they told me more about the certificate program. I wasn’t sure that a MBA was the right path for me, so the graduate certificate was a good way for me to get started.Pedro Cesar Gomes, GCBA’15
