If you're an international student or working professional with an undergraduate degree, our Evening Certificate Programs can help enhance your skills and credentials.

These certificates offer a specialization in a specific field—in business, art, design or behavioral health sciences—and practical skills that you can apply immediately.

Our certificates offer as much academic rigor as a graduate program but can be completed in less time. In addition, certificates allow you to focus on topics most relevant to your career and avoid the extra coursework required for graduate degrees. Most of our certificates can be completed within one year.

Courses are offered in evenings and on weekends in locations in San Francisco and Berkeley, communities very close to Silicon Valley's creativity and innovation. Take courses and network with U.S. professionals, and immerse yourself in California culture.

Gain a current, thorough understanding of accounting principles, reporting practices and regulatory requirements.

With an education in accounting, you are part of a field with significant potential worldwide job growth. Importantly, as new Certified Public Accountant (CPA) educational requirements and updated International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are put into effect, the need for additional expertise to implement new and emerging global standards is crucial. To meet these evolving requirements, this accounting certificate provides you with a current, thorough understanding of accounting principles, reporting practices and regulatory requirements, all based principally upon current U.S. standards.
