Professional Development Opportunities

Are you ready to take the next giant leap in your career? The Krannert School of Management offers nine certificate programs and four professional development programs that you can complete while continuing your full-time employment.

Designed for working professionals in a wide range of industries, the Krannert School's online graduate certificate programs give you the affordable opportunity to develop business and management knowledge in a faster, focused and flexible format. Much of the curriculum is drawn from foundational and core courses offered in our MBA/MS programs, and classes are taught by esteemed Krannert faculty.

A graduate certificate program will also help if you decide to pursue a graduate business degree — your earned credits can be applied to an online MBA/MS if you enroll within five years of finishing your certificate program.

"Purdue University’s Online MS Business Analytics degree was a perfect match for my interests, had high prestige in national rankings, and came at a very affordable investment."

-Peter Ohaver, Class of 2021


Among the professional development programs are Applied Management Principles (AMP), Change Management, Interpersonal Dynamics, and the Technical Management Institute (TMI). A hybrid of online and in-class learning, these programs require online prep work and on-campus interaction and networking with fellow professionals, industry experts, and faculty.

If you’re ready to pursue a master’s degree or MBA full-time, Krannert gives you that option, too. In addition to its residential and executive programs, the school has numerous online offerings, including an online MBA and five online MS programs.
