MBA Certificate Programs

The Augsburg MBA Business Certificate Programs target business and non-traditional professionals who have undergraduate degrees and are interested in continuing educational opportunities in data analytics, entrepreneurship, or finance. Some of our most successful students do not have undergraduate degrees in business!

The certificate programs are an attractive option for people who want to develop their business skills without undertaking a full degree program. A certificate is awarded after completion of four Augsburg MBA courses. The certificate courses are part of the MBA curriculum and would count toward the degree completion for the program.

Students will attend courses with matriculating MBA students which will enhance the learning experience through classroom discussions, case studies, and simulations. The interactions create opportunities for deep discussions, experiential learning, and critical thinking.

Students who enroll in the Certificate Program will be eligible to attend our Innovation Speaker Series and possibly participate in our Entrepreneurial Cup program.
