The College of Business and Economics offers a Subject Certificate in Business Administration. The coursework allows undeclared majors, and those majoring in non-business programs at UH Hilo, to develop business skills and knowledge. The program is also appropriate for those who have previously earned a bachelor degree. At least 50% of the course work must be completed at UH Hilo.

This certificate is designed for someone already working in business or intending to work in an organizational situation, who would like to gain a well-balanced fundamental perspective on business, while the business minor is designed for current students. However the certificate is available to current students as well. The coursework for the certificate is more advanced than that required by the minor. At least 50% of the coursework must be completed at UH Hilo. All courses are currently available and offered regularly in the Bachelor of Business Administration Degree program.
