IUPUC Programs

Undergraduate Certificate Programs
Certificate programs resemble minors but generally require more credit hours. Some certificate programs are stand-alone programs, which means that a student does not have to be working toward a two- or four-year degree to complete a certificate program. Specific requirements can be found in the section for the division offering the certificate.   
Associate Degree Programs
Some divisions award an associate degree after the completion of two years of full-time college course work. IUPUC offers a variety of associate degree programs, some in technical fields. Usually the course work completed for the associate degree will count toward the bachelor bachelor’s degree in the same discipline.
Bachelor’s Degree (Baccalaureate) Programs
The typical undergraduate degree program is either a bachelor of science or a bachelor of arts degree. The degree takes four years for full-time students, no comma  and substantially longer for part-time students. IUPUC's bachelor bachelor’s degrees are awarded in the professional divisions and within the arts and sciences.
Master’s Degree Programs
Outstanding students wishing who wish to continue their education may begin graduate work after the completion of their bachelor bachelor’s degrees. Most master’s degree programs require applicants to take standardized national examinations. The IU MBA M.B.A.  Columbus program requires students to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) (www.gmat.org) as part of the admission process. To be considered for admission, a four-year bachelor bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution is required. While an undergraduate business degree is not required, some preparatory work in mathematics, computing skills, and a business foundation, such as accounting and statistics, is expected. Courses for the IU MBA M.B.A. Columbus degree are sequenced to maximize learning potential while balancing the work load to accommodate the needs of working students.
