    Harvard Business School has some good certs but they are pricey. eCornell has some great ones that are less expensive and available via distance. If you're interested in finance, I know a member on the board did a finance cert from ECU.

    Thanks again.

    I see you have a Harvard Edu DL in progress. How rigorous is that program from your experience? Please share your experiences.

    The program I am in isn't available via DL. It is an in residence program. I am employed by the university and employees are allowed to attend this particular program on a part time basis if admitted. It is challenging, but no where near the amount of work my MBA was.

    Is it me or are the Tulane programs and the Notre Dame programs the exact same programs? Offered by some third party perhaps? Either way, $5,000.00 for three courses seems waaaay too expensive. There are schools where you can get an MBA for that price.

    UMass Online has a 12-credit Certificate inFoundations of Business. From the website:

    Provides a general business background and opportunity for people with non-business backgrounds to obtain a graduate-level certificate

    Certificate courses with grades B or better can be applied to the MBA Program

    pssibly, but that school wont have a reputation on par with ND or Tulane. Likely won't even be AACSB certified.

    ECU's certificate programs require that the student either hold an AACSB-accredited MBA or be concurrently enrolled in the ECU MBA program. Won't help the OP, unfortunately. However, if you do hold an MBA and live in NC, it's a very affordable way to add another quality credential (about $2500 for all four courses).
