The Business Plus Certificate, offered by the Fox School of Business and Management, is open to non-matriculated students only.

Building on the skills students gained through the Business Basics certificate, the Business Plus certificate will introduce students to additional fundamental business courses. Courses in accounting, economics, marketing, and risk management and insurance will continue to sharpen and refine strategic thinking in the business environment.

Students should complete the Business Basics Certificate prior to taking Business Plus courses. It is strongly recommended that students take the courses in the order listed within the requirements to build on their knowledge in a practical way.

These business foundation courses will apply toward the BBA if students matriculate into the degree program.
