The Business Certificate of Graduate Study (COGS) provides Master of Business Administration (MBA) course exposure to students who are ultimately interested in pursuing the MBA degree. This program is designed primarily for those potential graduate students who are considering the MBA degree but would like to fully understand the nature of the coursework before applying for admission to the degree program. The certificate of graduate study is also ideal for those who have not yet taken the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) as GMAT scores are not a requirement for admission to the certificate program. Students who wish to later pursue a Rohrer College of Business MBA may have all COGS credits transferred into the MBA program.
