Graduate Certificate in Financial Management

The GCFM provides a valuable credential for non-financial mid-management professionals in the private and the public sectors who wish to advance to decision-making positions within their organizations. The primary audience for the GCFM are individuals with undergraduate degrees in fields other than business management with finance as a major who wish to acquire additional academic credentials to advance within their organization or who wish to change their career paths and improve their competitive position in the job market. Especially, for many employees working in the technical and scientific fields without any financial background, the GCFM provides the knowledge of finance needed for decision-making roles within their technical or scientific fields.
