What is the program about?

This certificate is designed for the student who desires to complete Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) courses to transfer into a four-year business program. This certificate can be used to help students from non-business backgrounds begin preparation for entrance into a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program by packaging the prerequisite business core courses into a convenient certificate offering. Additionally, students wanting to pursue a two-year business degree or needing to augment current work skills with academic credentials may find this certificate beneficial.

Program Outcomes

  • Students will develop and apply an awareness of legal considerations affecting business transactions.
  • Students will be able to successfully communicate business concepts to others in both written and oral formats.
  • Students will be able to analyze business spreadsheets and perform basic business-related numerical analysis.
  • Students will apply marketing concepts in development of marketing plans or strategy within the course of business analysis.

Career Opportunities

Employers more often than in the past require four-year business degrees or evidence that students are in the process of earning these credentials. This certificate serves as a credentialing tool for students to use in their career search, as well as, for currently employed students to show further evidence of growth and academic progress toward a bachelor's degree in business.


The courses completed in this certificate are directly transferable into a business program at all Ohio public institutions and to many private colleges and universities, both within Ohio and outside the state.
