Academic Certificates

Academic certificate programs at the Jindal School of Management provide focused knowledge in specific areas of interest. Students can earn academic credits in these programs that can be transferred to degree programs. In addition, academic certificate applicants must have at least a bachelor’s degree and meet The University of Texas at Dallas graduate school requirements.

Academic certificates not earned through Executive Education have an admission process similar to graduate programs. Learn more about admission, application, deadlines and more by visiting the JSOM Academic Certificates page.

Professional Certificates

Professional certificate programs provide an avenue for the working professional to get up to date knowledge on cutting edge topics that are in demand in the current work environment. Academic credit cannot be earned by pursuing professional certificates. Professional certificate applicants need not have university degree but must meet program-specific admission requirements.
