Continuing Education (non-degree)

Stay Current. Expand Your Skills. Move Ahead.

Non-degree students are able to take a maximum of six graduate level courses outside of a Daniels master’s program. Whether you’re looking to take on a new role in your current field, transition to another business discipline or simply enhance your existing skills, our graduate-level courses can help you move up the career ladder.

All graduate level courses are fully transferable and a maximum of 3 classes may be applied to a Daniels MBA or specialized master’s degree.
