I just found this on the NCU catalog. The CAGS is a certificate program for students who already hold a masters degree and want to learn more about particular subjects like accounting or finance. I was briefly enrolled in the CAGS E-Commerce. I took one course and left the CAGS for a PhD Applied Computer Science. They have dropped the E-Commerce CAGS and now have a CAGS general business. I might enroll in this as well if I can as a hedge against dropping out of the PhD program. CAGS - General Business The General Business certificate program allows students to select courses from a broad range of electives to fit their personal and professional goals. Students must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours for the certificate in General Business. Students must take at least four business courses from any of the Business CAGS programs offered and may take up to two courses from the CAGS offered in other fields (Psychology and/or Education) to fulfill their General Business certificate requirements. Additional courses (i.e., more than two courses) from other disciplines may be considered to fill this requirement, with Dean approval.
