For current USC graduate students, courses credited to the Graduate Certificate in Strategy and Management Consulting may be completed in conjunction with course work required for the program in which the student is already enrolled. Applicability of these courses to the student's primary degree program is determined by the student's home department. Current MBA students may apply all 15 units of the graduate certificate program to their MBA degree. (Note: conferral of the certificate and documentation on the transcript is not automatic. It requires that the individual formally apply to the program and be admitted. See the Admissions and Frequently Asked Questions pages for more information about this process.)

For USC alumni, courses completed in conjunction with the individual's prior degree may not be credited toward the certificate. Appropriate substitutions for required courses will be determined and documented by the program director.

Successful completion of the program is documented on the student's transcript and acknowledged with a certificate (diploma) awarded by the university.
