Graduate Studies / Executive Education
Certificates are abbreviated courses of study in specialized fields that can provide much-needed skills and knowledge in specific areas. These certificates provide comprehensive coverage of a particular topic and grant a certificate of completion at the end of the course of study.
Noncredit certificates are designed for students seeking to elevate their career and pursue new opportunities. An FIT/SUNY certificate is an excellent addition to a resume, setting you apart from other candidates.
Certificate courses do not carry college credits; they cannot be transferred to another college or counted towards a degree program at FIT. You will receive a digital badge upon completion.
