The College offers the Certificate in Business Administration to people who have already earned a baccalaureate degree in an area other than business. The coursework nearly duplicates the minor in Business Administration and allows those graduates of other programs who wish to gain a formal credential testifying to their up-to-date business management skills and knowledge an opportunity to do so. It is especially useful to those already working in business or those intending to work in an organizational situation that would like to gain a well-balanced fundamental perspective on business. At least 50% of the course work must be completed at UH Hilo. All courses are currently available and offered regularly in the Bachelor of Business Administration Degree program.

Required courses are:

  • ACC 201 Financial Accounting (3)
  • ACC 202 Managerial Accounting (3) (Pre: ACC 201)
  • ECON 130 Introduction to Microeconomics (3)
  • FIN 320 Principles of Business Finance (3) (Pre: ACC 201, one MATH course numbered 104F, 115, 205 or higher and BUS 290)
  • MGT 333 International Business Management (3) (Pre: ECON 130 and MGT 300)
  • MKT 310 Principles of Marketing (3) (Pre: ECON 130, ACC 201 and BUS 290)
