Why Choose Management Tools & Concepts ?

Responding to industry trends, Ferris State University's College of Business Graduate Programs has created graduate-level advanced studies certificates. These four course sequences can be used to obtain stand-alone certificates or as emphasis areas leading to masters degrees in either Information Security and Intelligence or a Master of Business Administration based on the philosophy of performance metrics-based management.

The Management Tools and Concepts Certificate is designed to create business leaders that have a robust exposure to global business and organizational sustainability concepts and issues and to enable those leaders to use technical tools to aid in understanding business systems, developing improvement strategies, and leading managing the change process.

Admission Requirements

A bachelor degree from a regionally accredited university with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 or better on a 4.0 scale.

Graduation Requirements

The Advanced Studies Certificate in Management Tools and Concepts is awarded to individuals who have completed the 12 required credits with a minimum accumulative GPA of 3.0 or greater and no course less than 2.0.

No more than 50% of the credits in this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor, will this certificate be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are specifically required in the student's major.
