Online Safety: Avoid Phishing Attacks
Phishing is used by identity thieves to steal your personal information, including passwords and financial access. Many of these attempts look like requests from an organization you already trust, including the University. If you'd like to learn more about the types of phishing hackers may use, visit this link and for any emails you receive that may look like a phishing attempt, check the list of confirmed phishing attempts reported by faculty and staff here. Stay safe!
Specialization Certificates
Pursuing graduate business education can be as challenging as it is rewarding. It is a rigorous experience, both in the ways you engage in classes and through the unique hands-on learning experiences required in each of our specializations. Thus, we believe in the importance of celebrating milestones like the completion of specializations. Moving forward, we will be awarding certificates for each specialization completed, regardless of the capstone. We think it is important to recognize your mastery in a subject area and that our specialization certificates allow you to share that. Certificates for Spring 2021 will be awarded by the end of the week.
