Why pursue a micro-credential?
Lifelong learning is increasingly available to students and, often, expected by potential employers. A micro-credential shows employers that you're willing to invest time and resources in your professional development - even if you're not ready to complete a full graduate degree.
At the same time, Duquesne micro-credential students benefit from the accessibility, small class sizes, and faculty expertise that are hallmarks of the AACSB-accredited Palumbo-Donahue School of Business. You'll study alongside full-time graduate students in graduate courses while following a curriculum that meets your needs.
Successfully completing the Business Analytics Fundamentals micro-credential leads to 4.5 credits of advanced standing credit toward the Professional MBA, 6 credits of advanced standing credit toward the MS - Analytics & Information Management and MC - Analytics & Information Management, or 7.5 credits of advanced standing toward the STEM-designated Professional MBA.
Students who earn a 3.25 GPA or better in the micro-credential will qualify for GMAT/GRE waivers when applying for a graduate degree.
