What does an Executive Certificate cost?

It depends. There is no one set price. You select the courses that fit your schedule and educational plan. The total cost would be the price of the individual courses completed. 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.
