Graduate Certificate in Economic Development

The economic development certificate is designed for students who wish to combine a graduate degree (master's or Ph.D.) with a specialty in urban, regional and state economic development.

Eligible students are those who already have a graduate degree, or who are pursuing graduate studies in one of five units on campus: business administration, economics, political science, industrial relations, and urban planning.
