Management Information Systems Certificates

Increase Your Specialization

Enhance or refine your skills through one of five University of Houston-Clear Lake certificates available through the Management Information Systems Certificate program. The programs are designed for busy professionals in the aerospace, information technology and related industries who cannot commit to a full graduate degree program. They include the following: 

  • Business Applications Development
  • Business Computer Networking and Security
  • Business Database Development and Administration
  • Information Systems Management
  • Information Technology

Prepare for the Future

Your certificate from UHCL’s College of Business will bring you approximately one-third of the way through the full graduate degree program. Completing your certificate demonstrates to employers that you possess a strong commitment to a specific area of specialization. When you’re ready to finish your master’s degree, you’ll find achieving your certificate is a confidence booster that will help you to transition more successfully into completing a full course of graduate studies.
