Finance: Certificate


The graduate certificate program in finance at the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics allows working professionals to go beyond the numbers and master the concepts and methods that practicing financial professionals use to maximize the value of their firms.

You’ll take the same courses offered in the Lerner MBA and learn how to understand and conduct cash flow valuation and capital budgeting, portfolio management, and financing with debt, equity and hybrids. You’ll learn how to apply financial modeling tools to value various assets and transactions including IPOs, mergers, private equity transactions, leveraged buyouts and others.

Whether you’re a professional who has previously earned an MBA or an undergraduate degree, if you want to develop specialized expertise to advance or redirect your career, you will benefit from this program.
