This ten-course, 30-credit certificate program is designed to give students not majoring in business sufficient basic business skills to be able to function adequately at a rudimentary level in a workplace environment immediately upon completion. This certificate is comprised of courses designed to provide students with a basic understanding of business in society, basic technology skills, communication skills (both oral and written), and math skills. The certificate is tailored to meet individual student needs and interests by incorporating business elective courses. Students are encouraged to develop their individual areas of interest or maximize employment opportunities by choosing a specific elective option. Students deciding to continue on for an Associate in Science degree will find that all of the courses taken in this certificate program may apply to an Associate of Science in Business Administration, Accounting, or General Studies at Middlesex Community College.  Learn More About This Program >
