Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Administration Certificate (Quarter)

Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Administration Certificate

For students beginning their program February 26, 2024 or later.

The Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Administration Certificate program is designed to provide students who hold a doctoral degree in business or a non-business field with core knowledge in a business discipline outside their previous doctoral studies. Students explore such topics as marketing, business strategy, and compliance. This certificate program emphasizes business aspects in a global context and explores relevant trends students can apply in settings that include postsecondary education, research, and consulting.

With the exception of DBAX 8006, DBAX 8161, and a maximum of one course in a three-course focus area that satisfies a learning outcome in a different focus area, any courses used toward the completion of a doctoral program cannot be applied toward the completion of the post-doctoral bridge certificate.
