The University of West Florida's (UWF) Graduate Business Foundations Certificate Program offers both online and onsite business foundation courses for participants interested in developing or renewing skills and knowledge in basic business foundations. The program primarily targets working professionals with non-business undergraduate degrees who desire formal business education to support existing or anticipated responsibilities in their career tracks. The Graduate Business Foundations Certificate also provides the foundation for further graduate study in business and administration. Depending on the options chosen, a participant can complete many of the foundational courses necessary to enter the Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program or apply the courses toward the Master of Science in Administration (MSA) Program.
In addition to meeting general University requirements participants must successfully complete the prescribed courses earning a grade of "C" or better in each course and a combined grade point average for all the certificate courses equal to 3.0 or better. Courses are listed below:
|Course Number||Course Title||Hours|
