The Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Administration Certificate program is designed to provide students who hold a doctoral degree in business or a non-business field with core knowledge in a business discipline outside their previous doctoral studies. Students explore such topics as marketing, business strategy, supply chain management, and compliance. This certificate program emphasizes business aspects in a global context and explores relevant trends students can apply in settings that include postsecondary education, research, and consulting.
