Undergraduate Certificate in Finance 

Our Certificate in Finance prepares individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field for entry into careers in financial advisory, corporate finance, money management, and commercial and investment banking.  It is designed for career conversion (current Cal State LA bachelor's degree students should do a minor). Starting Fall 2018, the certificate will require 15 semester units (five courses) - equivalent to a minor - so that it can be completed in one year (see worksheet below).  Students may begin their courses now and apply at that time for the certificate

No program application is necessary.  Take the required courses through Open University by filling out the Open University Registration Form which is available in the College of Professional and Global Education located in the University Student Union, Room 105.

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Real Estate

The Certificate in Real Estate is designed for individuals not pursuing a Bachelor's Degree at Cal State LA (current Cal State LA bachelor's degree students should do a minor in real estate). 12 semester units (four courses) are required for completion of the certificate (see worksheet below), and it is approved by the California Bureau of Real Estate to meet the degree requirements to sit for the Brokers Exam (see adjacent Cal DRE letters); however, you still need to complete all eight (8) statutory required college level Real Estate courses before you are allowed to take the Brokers Exam in California. This program is open to all students who have earned a bachelor's degree or are pursuing a degree at another university.  One (1) upper- division course may be credited toward the certificate from another accredited university - 100 or 200 level or community college real estate courses are not accepted (no exceptions)
