What is a graduate certificate in financial management? This certificate is for anyone who wants to understand financial management and the process of making large- and small-scale financial decisions. You should expect to divide your time between studying financial theory and working hands-on with new financial tools. Some typical courses include international finance management, budgeting, mathematics of finance, financial statement analysis and working capital management.

Studying financial management can teach you how to notice small details, have a head for numbers and communicate in group settings. Noticing details and handling numbers well can help you balance your budget and cut spending. Being a skilled communicator is a great way to meet new people and network professionally.

The school you choose to attend can affect how much your certificate costs. School location and size are big factors for registration and course fees. Other expenses include books, supplies, travel and food.
