Management Science Certificate

S1100034UMBC’s Managerial Sciences Certificate Program prepares students for careers in business and government. This program is designed to supplement a liberal arts or science major; certificates must be earned concurrently with an undergraduate major. Students gain the combined benefits of their major program and a business program and have great success in obtaining employment and acceptance in top graduate and professional school programs.

The Management Science Certificate emphasizes the theoretical, technical, and applied economic aspects of business administration and management. It stresses decision making using statistical and mathematical tools and surveys most areas of business operations.

Effective Fall 2013:  All upper level IS and Management courses used to satisfy these program requirements must be taught through the IS department at UMBC

Certificate programs are for current UMBC undergraduate students. Notice of successful completion is placed on the transcript at time of graduation. There is not a separate certificate document.
