Penn State's advanced business certificate can help develop a student's skills in spoken communication and quantification. In a very flexible way, students explore functional fields of business. Students who complete the advanced business certificate will have completed almost half of the credits required for Penn State Altoona's associate degree in Business. (2BAAL) Only students who have completed all courses required for the basic business certificate are eligible to earn an Advanced Business Certificate. No course may count toward both the basic certificate and the advanced certificate in business.
To earn an undergraduate certificate in ADVANCED BUSINESS, a minimum of 15 credits is required.
