The industry needs your creative solutions and skill

Applications are everywhere in our digital world and in every industry. The Graduate Certificate in Business Application Development is the AACSB-accredited credential you need to balance business knowledge with technical skill to develop applications for business.

By completing this certificate, you’ll be able to confidently assess and determine the requirements of an application for business use. You will learn to plan, design, develop, test and debug business applications using modeling and programming languages, tools and technologies.

You will also use Interactive Development Environments (IDEs) for software development, implement modularization and documentation, and learn best practices in software development.

Every credit earned in this certificate can later be applied toward the CSU College of Business’s online or on-campus Master of Computer Information Systems after formal admission per University transfer policies. Successful completion of the certificate does not guarantee degree-program admission.
