Business Management―Certificate

Managers oversee the operational and fiscal activities of the areas they supervise. Duties may include formulating policies, managing daily operations and planning the use of materials and human resources, but are too diverse and general in nature to be classified in any one functional area of management or administration, such as personnel, purchasing, or administrative services.

Business managers must have highly developed interpersonal skills and be able to communicate clearly and persuasively, while quickly processing large quantities of information analytically.


The purpose of this program is to prepare students for the operation of a business and to become business owners and entrepreneurs. It also provides supplemental training for persons previously or currently operating or owning a business. The courses in this program are also part of the Business Administration AS to BS Transfer Program-Associate in Science degree. Students need to contact the Admissions and Student Records office to apply for their certificate. After receiving their certificate, students are encouraged to continue their education by completing the courses in the AS degree.


This program can be completed in approximately one year if students attend classes on a full-time basis.


This program can be completed on the East Campus in Dade City, North Campus in Brooksville and West Campus in New Port Richey. At least two-thirds of this certificate can be completed on the Spring Hill Campus.
