OLLU creates business certificates for future leaders

Nov 20, 2020

To prepare students for the rapidly-changing world of business, Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) has created four certificate programs that equip tomorrow’s leaders with the cutting-edge skills of today.

In response to a request from a major medical research center, OLLU designed the “Business Essentials for Health Care Professionals ” certificate for future executives.

Recognizing a shortage in the field of analytics, OLLU created the “Business Analytics and Intelligent Decision Making ” certificate, a program that shows students how to collect and use data.

OLLU also has created the “Essential Business Skills ” certificate and the “Financial Analysis and Corporate Performance ” certificate.

“Students with these certificates can land jobs in a variety of fields,” said Gultekin Gollu, PhD, assistant professor of Economics. “The skills they learn will help them make good business decisions.” 

All the new graduate-level certificates are offered online and scholarship opportunities are available. The certificates were designed to meet the needs of working professionals who may not be ready to earn a master’s degree. Students who complete the certificates and later decide to pursue a master’s degree will be able to apply the credits from the certificate to a master’s degree.
