The Smeal College Business Fundamentals Certificate provides non-Smeal students with the background and knowledge for careers in corporate and non-profit settings. Core courses are framed around an integrated approach to management, finance, global operations, product development and promotion, and legal aspects of business. Students gain practical skills needed to compete in today's rapidly changing business environment.
A grade of C or better is required in all prescribed courses; these courses must be taken at Penn State. Provided that at least three of the five courses are taken in the Smeal College of Business, certificate courses may be satisfied by substituting Penn State courses with comparable content at the same level with the approval of the Smeal College. Students must be enrolled in a non-business baccalaureate program to pursue this certificate.
ACCTG 211, ECON 102, and three credits of 200-level statistics.
