Certificates for Undergraduates

Scheller offers twelve certificates open to undergraduate degree-seeking students at Georgia Tech. Both business and other (non-business) majors may pursue business certificates. Students should submit a registration when they begin the certificate and an application two weeks before they graduate. These certificates provide a road map to a deeper understanding and knowledge of the chosen subject matter.

General Certificate Information

  • Certificates are available only to degree-seeking Georgia Tech undergraduates.
  • Certificates are optional for Business Administration Majors.
  • Certificates include advanced coursework offered in specific business areas and are designed to allow students to gain expertise.
  • Earning certificates can enhance your marketability for employment.
  • A certificate consists of a minimum of 12 credit hours of courses beyond the basic required courses per certificate area.
  • BSBA students may use only one course to fulfill a concentration requirement and to fulfill a requirement for a MGT certificate. For example, the International Marketing class can be used toward both the Marketing concentration and the International Management certificate. You are not able to count another course toward your certificate if it was also a part of your Marketing concentration.
  • BSBA students may not earn a certificate and a concentration in the same area.
  • Technology & Management students may not use any Engineering & Management minor courses toward any certificate at Tech, including MGT certificates.
For Non-Business Students

  • You do not need approval from the College of Business to seek a certificate, but we advise you to complete our certificate registration form when you begin it. After registering, work with your major advisor and the Scheller certificate advisor to fit the classes into your academic plan.
  • We recommend all non-business majors who wish to pursue a certificate have a minimum of 2-3 semesters remaining to ensure enough time to complete certificate requirements.
  • Certificate advising for non-business majors is available each semester.  Information and advising schedules will be sent to all registered certificate seekers via email each semester 3-4 weeks prior to registration opening.  Business Certificate questions can be directed to certificate advisor Beatriz Rodriguez at:  .   
  • Seeking a certificate does not allow you to register for MGT classes before the major restrictions are lifted. The Undergraduate Office does not give out permits for such cases.
  • Please apply for the certificate two weeks prior to graduating. Your transcript will be reviewed and your certificate mailed 4-6 weeks after degrees are conferred. Please make sure the address you use on your application is correct. This is where the certificate will be mailed.
