Business Administration, Graduate Certificate (GCBA)

CIP Code = 520201

The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration allows anyone with a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution and meets Louisiana Tech University’s admission criteria to take any four (4) of the core MBA courses as long as course prerequisites have been met. To earn the certificate, students must first apply for the certificate online and the cumulative graduate GPA for the four core MBA courses taken must be 3.0 or higher. In addition, if the participating student earns a cumulative graduate GPA of 3.2 or higher, the GMAT requirement may be waived and the student will be unconditionally admitted if the student applies for admission to the MBA program . Students must meet the prerequisites for all of the core MBA courses prior to enrolling in MBA coursework. Among the seven core MBA courses offered, three courses have prerequisites: ACCT 505 , ECON 510 , and FINC 515 . These prerequisites may be met by passing the relevant online fast-track courses (ACCT 494 , ECON 494 , FINC 494 , and QA 494 , which comprise the Business Foundations Post-Baccalaureate Certificate ). The seven core MBA courses (listed alphabetically) are:
