The School of Business offers a variety of Experiential Certificates throughout the academic year.
The Diversity in Business Lectures are offered during the fall and spring semesters and consist of a series of presentations by School of Business Alumni or industry professionals. The purpose of the lecture series is to provide students with an opportunity to learn about diversity, leadership, creativity, product innovation, entrepreneurial thinking, persuasive communication, and the art of "putting it all together" from industry executives or UConn Alumni.
Students who attend 3 of the 4 lectures will be awarded a certificate in Diversity Leadership in April.
Offered during spring semesters, GBLSS affords students the opportunity to earn a Professional Development Certificate from the School of Business while learning from international business leaders.
This certificate is available to all graduate and undergraduate UConn students, and students may earn a certificate each spring semester if they so choose. A certificate is achieved by attending three out of the four GBLSS lectures offered during the semester.
In partnership with the Connecticut District Export Council, UConn School of Business offers the Export Compliance Certificate program to promote knowledge about exporting to students who may wish to have this additional skill for their resumes and potential internships.
In a global economy, knowledge of exporting logistics and compliance is crucial for businesses of all sizes, as 95% of all consumers live outside the U.S. Achieving this certificate will prepare students to assist an SME (Small to Medium size Enterprise) to either begin or expand their exporting capabilities.
