    I'm considering a few different Master's degree options to include the MBA, MBA w/ Finance, and Master of Applied Econ, and Master of Quantitative Finance.

    I don't have too much a problem in terms of pre-reqs with any of them but the Master of Quantitative Finance. I'd like to keep that option open, so I'd like to see what mathematics certificates I could get to make that possible. I'm specifically looking for an undergrad level math certificate that will incorporate classes like Calculus II, Calculus III, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. An elective for C++ programing would make it all the better.

    I found something that looks up my alley at Brandeis, but I don't want to pay most of what I'd pay for a masters just to get pre-reqs for a masters.

    Certificate in Mathematics | Brandeis University

    MITx has some good free online learning courses, but I need something that produces a credential.

    If it is just prereqs you need, why not LSU Independent Study? They may not give you are "certificate", but they have most or all of the prereqs you need.

    Also, Shorter University might have what you need - Distance Calculus @ Shorter University .

    major - you've clearly carved out a niche for yourself as THE researcher in these maters. So let me push you one rung further up that ladder. You've created a very nice list for Math certs. How about Statistics? Do you have a list for Statistics certs?

    I used to work for one of the largest companies in the USA - they were always looking for people versed in Excel programming using VBA. I suspect this may be more useful then C++ in a business environment.

    OK, that might be true but I think it's clear that people, myself included, find your listings quite helpful.

    Thanks Kizmet,

    I’m encouraged that the participation is helpful to some ... a purpose (e.g., assisting others as regards distance leaning) of DegreeInfo. :usa2:

    Even I have a similar query. I am an international student seeking admission to masters coursesin US. I have to complete 4 credits of calculus as a prerequisite for Masters in Analytics.

    I have browsed various sites and got to know that there is a credit-by-exam system used by students wherein by clearing exams one can claim and transfer credits on basis of scores.

    The various providers for this credit-by-exam system are CLEP, AP and Excelsior College.

    If anyone can give clarity on this, please reply.
