The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (GCBA) from the Lee Business School (LBS) is designed for individuals who seek an opportunity for advanced study in core business functional areas. Many individuals seek advanced knowledge in business administration but cannot commit to a full Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program.

The GCBA will give students a means to gain mastery in their professional fields, new academic knowledge about business administration, and improved performance in their existing jobs. Also, the graduate certificate will enhance their resumes, increasing their appeal in competitive job markets.

Students can pursue the GCBA as a stand-alone certificate or complement a traditional degree program they are pursuing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).
