“The emphasis on transformational and servant leadership has always stuck with me as I’ve progressed in my career,” says Joe Ahn, vice president of growth marketing at Square. “The program also did a good job of involving us in local community businesses as consultants working through real-life challenges.”

George Fox MBA alumnus Justin Winn

“Fox didn’t just open my eyes to the core competencies of business acumen,” says Justin Winn, a senior IT project manager for Marion County, Oregon. “It also combined mathematics and the hard sciences with the soft part of just being human and relating to people.”

Professional Certificate Options

Want to add a specialization to your degree? George Fox offers optional professional certificate programs comprising one to three courses that you take toward the end of the program. Delve into business analytics or project management and level up your degree. 

Business Analytics Certificate

The business analytics graduate certificate consists of two three-credit courses:

  • BUSG 600 Business Analytics: Foundational Methods of Analytics
  • BUSG 603 Business Analytics: Data Based Decisions and Strategy

Applicants for the Business Analytics Certificate must hold an MBA degree and have completed a masters-level business analytics course prior to enrolling. The cost per credit is $950, which means you’ll pay an additional $5,700 for the Business Analytics Certificate.

Project Management Certificate

In today’s fast-paced business environment, project managers are key to a team’s success. This certificate program will teach you the framework and practices of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and how to integrate the methodology into your own work. You’ll learn how to effectively communicate, manage, problem-solve and drive efficiencies while working with cross-functional teams in a variety of settings.
