This 9-credit online certificate will help you understand the framework for structuring and understanding business, information, and technology and how they work together to achieve strategic and tactical goals.

The program consists of three (3) required courses designed to provide you with a solid foundation in principles of business architecture. Students in the program can typically complete the certificate on a part-time basis in less than 12 months.

All courses are asynchronous, meaning you are not required to log in at a particular time each week. Optional synchronous discussions will be available throughout the semester for those students who prefer a higher level of engagement.

Courses are structured to allow you to complete weekly assignments when and where it's most convenient for you. While courses are autonomous, you will have the opportunity to interact and engage with your classmates through integrated experiences. This peer-to-peer interaction enhances your learning experience while strengthening your professional network on a global scale.
