Professional Science Management Certificate

The PSM Certification has been built upon well-established University at Albany graduate programs that include Forensic Biology (FB) and Biodiversity, Conservation and Policy (BCP), and goes beyond the Master's Program to prepare graduates for careers in business, industry, the nonprofit sector, and government agencies by adding coursework in business, management, and policy.

The Certificate is an alternative for those who do not wish to pursue an additional degree in Business Administration.

Students in the Certificate Programs will be required to complete at least 9 credits of additional coursework from specified courses instructed by faculty from the School of Business and the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy. This coursework is a novel component of the graduate-level PSMs. Both PSMs will include an internship that stresses the ability of each student to plan, conduct, interpret and communicate research, and to work both independently and as a member of a team.
