Management - Certificate

Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.

The Management certificate program is designed for students who want to explore management or practicing professionals who wish to increase their effectiveness in a variety of managerial roles. The program provides an opportunity for advancing or refreshing existing skills. The program’s mix of coursework provides students with a broad understanding of the issues facing the business world.

Upon successful completion of the initial courses, students apply their knowledge in courses such as strategy, behavioral modification, production operations, managerial technology and human resources.

The program prepares completers for a career in a variety of entry-level managerial positions in business and industry. The program serves to enhance advancement and development opportunities for those already in the field.

All credits successfully earned in the certificate program can be applied towards a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management.
