Certificate in International Business

IB Certificate Requirements

The International Business Certificate is a fifteen (15) credit program. The certificate is available to any Duquesne University student.

Advantages for Business Students Completing the Certificate:

Certain courses in the certificate can be double-counted toward the business core and in many cases toward a student's major(s). As such, business students would take no more than four additional courses, and many business students could earn the certificate with as few as three or even just two additional courses.

Taking Certificate Courses through Study Abroad
