Business Management Certificate

Build a solid business foundation to advance your career

February 2 – June 5, 2021

The Business Management Certificate is a four-month part-time program that curates key business principles and leadership skills for advancing your career. It is ideal for early to mid-career professionals who want to lead projects and teams more effectively.

Topics covered include marketing, business strategy, finance, accounting, people management, leadership, communication skills, and the tools to work through complex business problems and expertly present your solution.

This accelerated program will help you gain new skills and expand your professional network, adding to your competitive edge and your ability to adapt to today’s economy.

Program highlights

The 2021 program will begin in a live online format and will transition to in-person classes on the UW Seattle campus once it is safe to do so. If we are able to transition to in-person classes, you will have the option to continue attending remotely. For team assignments and projects, this will require each team to work with team members to respect one another’s comfort level and arrange meeting times that work for everyone involved.
