Certificate in International Commerce
A High Tech, High Paying and in High Demand Credential
The graduate certificate in International Commerce builds on a current specialization in international business as a degree track in the MS in Management. Most of the courses and faculty resources needed in the graduate program exist within the current MSM program.
Who is this program recommended for?The international dimension is now accepted as important to business operations. Its importance continues to grow, yet the dilemma this presents for those who teach it is that it may be only a matter of time before the international distinction is dropped altogether. Now virtually all business activities have some link to the international dimension. This program will prepare students for careers in large multinationals or small, rapidly growing international firms. This program is recommended for those who would like to diversify their skills as the economy expands outwardly.

Why study the International Commerce graduate certificate through CPE?The NJIT School of Management recognizes the growing demand for e-commerce courses and e-commerce specialization.

The graduate certificate International Commerce is the result of this.

Online Graduate Certificate study at NJIT has its advantages. New Jersey residents studying online and/or on-campus will be charged, as always, the in-state tuition rate. However if you reside “outside” of New Jersey, you qualify for our new online tuition rate. This new rate is significantly lower than the out-of-state fee to attend classes on campus. In order to receive the new graduate online tuition all classes must be studied online during a given semester. Because of the new online tuition, adults living anywhere in the country, as well as abroad, can afford to earn a graduate certificate or a degree from NJIT. And international students do not need to acquire a Visa, since entirely online learning permits study from the home country.
