Goodwell, Okla. — The Oklahoma Panhandle State University School of Business is pleased to announce a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION IN MANAGEMENT program consisting of coursework ideal for working people who want to refresh their skills in management or for students who will eventually be seeking a degree.

Oklahoma Panhandle State is well known for exemplary professionals who have been a part of its School of Business. OPSU graduates and students are working with distinction in managerial and technical occupations all over the world.

The Certificate of Completion in MANAGEMENT is not a degree program however; the courses taken as part of the program are fully accredited and can be used as part of an approved program. A certificate of completion will be awarded once the learner has satisfied all requirements. Students will learn about different management areas and explore issues and subject matter that will assist them in their current occupations.

HOW IT WORKS: In order to complete the Certificate of Completion in Management program, a learner must complete FOUR management based courses in the OPSU School of Business. There are two required courses (three credit hours each); and two electives (three credit hours each). Many learners who will be seeking four year degrees from OPSU will want to take ALL SIX courses. All courses are offered on-line as well as in traditional format and the certificate of completion can be earned in one year or less.

Required Courses (6 hours total):
MGMT 3813 - Principles of Management (3 credit hours)
MGMT 4873 - Human Resource Management (3 credit hours)

Elective Courses (learners must take any two of the following = 6 hours total)
MGMT 4893 - Small Business Management (3 hours)
BADM 4000 - Collective Bargaining (3 hours)
MGMT 4983 - Strategic Management (3 hours)
MGMT 4813 – Office Management (3 hours)

All courses are offered in both on-line and traditional formats. Registration for the second semester has begun and faculty and staff are available to assist with enrollment.

The certificate of completion itself is not a college degree, but it will provide validation of completion of the program and is suitable for display in one’s home or office.
