Planning Your Certificate

Pursuing an Executive Certificate allows you to further your business knowledge and skills on a convenient, flexible schedule of your own design. Our professional certificate programs run throughout the year and are typically two days to one week in duration. The certificates are offered in three areas of concentration, providing executives with the opportunity to tailor their education plans to meet their own specific interests and business goals.

Sample Executive Certificate Costs

Executive Certificates are designed to meet your individual education needs. You select and attend four programs: three in your chosen track and one additional program, your “elective”, from any track within four years. The total cost would be the costs of the individual programs you attend. You may choose all two-day programs or a mixture of two-day and week-long programs. You don't have to enroll in and pay for all of the programs at one time, however there are significant savings when you take advantage of the Multiple Program Registration Discount*. The samples below illustrate how the pricing structure would work based upon the programs you select.

Sample Strategy and Innovation certificate (three two-day programs and one three-day program):

If you used the Multiple Program Registration Discount*, your total cost would be: $13,985 (a savings of $1,815). See how the discount would apply in this example:

* Multiple Program Registration Discount:
Individuals registering at one time for more than one program receive 15% off each “additional” program. The first program would be full price. (e.g., If you are enrolling in four 2-day programs, the first program would be at the full price, and the three additional programs would be at the discounted price. If your first program is a 3-day or 5-day course that would be at the full price.) All program registrations must be submitted via a single application form.

These are just examples of the many different program combinations available. Our executive education staff will be happy to assist you in designing your Executive Certificate program plan to meet your individual and organizational objectives. Please feel free to contact us at 617-253-7166 or
