Creative thinkers bring new ideas to life. Emerging entrepreneurs seek out change, innovation, and connection. They embrace critical thinking and seek continuous improvement.

At Northeastern University, we want to inspire this kind of thinking. We encourage our graduate students from all academic backgrounds to explore their drive for innovation.

Just-in-Time Learning. The Graduate Certificate in Innovation Management 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 Innovation Management has been designed with working professionals in mind. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays. You may even take one of our courses online. You can choose to come to campus just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester.

Start your Graduate Certificate in Innovation Management at a time that works for you. You can enter the program in January, May, or September.

Build toward something more. The Graduate Certificate in Innovation Management 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. Our entrepreneurship program has been ranked #9 by The Princeton Review. 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 the Part-Time MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
