In 1974 the School of Business and Economics instituted a unique program for adults desiring to secure training for a career in the expanding field of accounting. The Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting (PBCA) is geared for mature students whose positions or occupations lack opportunity or challenge or whose talents are being underutilized. The program is open to anyone holding a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. Students will receive instruction in the major areas of accounting and selected courses in the basic business core.
Indiana University Northwest's Graduate Certificate in Management (GCM) is a 15 credit hour program of study in management designed for individual who works full-time but wants to enhance their current management skills or add a graduate certificate to an existing undergraduate degree. This 15 credit hour Certificate can be finished on a part-time basis in as little as 9-12 months. This program is intended for someone with an undergraduate degree in a field other than business who may not wish to pursue a full Masters degree just yet.
