The Graduate Certificate in Innovation was created to meet the needs of innovative corporations and start-up companies. It provides knowledge needed for those who are involved with innovation.
All course requirements can be completed online, live (usually between 5:30 and 8:15 p.m. for 15 weeks) or a combination of the two. Those attending live at the Memphis campus will be provided dinner from our cafeteria as part of the tuition fee. Additionally all students will be provided the course textbook either hard-copy or electronic format (when available), as part of the tuition fee. All classes are captured on our media servers so if you cannot make it to a particular live lecture because of work or family obligations, you can watch a video recording later.
All classes can be applied toward the MSEM or MSCIS Program upon successful completion.
