The UofL College of Business offers two unique certificate programs – one in Accountancy and one in Equine Business.  Students with or without business majors are eligible for the Certificate in Accountancy.  Both certificates are offered to graduate students.

Business Certificates

Certificate in Accounting

The Certificate in Accounting Program (CAP) is designed for individuals who already have an undergraduate degree in a field other than accounting. The program consists of 7 courses (which must be completed while enrolled in the CAP). When combined with the prerequisite courses, graduates will have 27 hours of college-level accounting coursework required to sit for the CPA exam in Kentucky. Kentucky requires an additional 12 credit hours of college credit in business courses. Other states have different requirements. Information about those requirements can be obtained from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (www.nasba.org).

Please see the UofL Undergraduate Catalog for the most up-to-date information on prerequisites and curriculum.

Certificate in Equine Business

A one-year Certificate in Equine Business is available to persons who have earned a four-year degree and are seeking specialized training in Equine Business. The Certificate program is an undergraduate course of specially tailored equine courses.

The Equine Business Certificate is the only program of its kind. The program enhances the understanding of the horse business and prepares the student for a position in the field of the equine industry. Students benefit from the small class size and faculty experienced in the area of equine business.

The most up-to-date curriculum for the Equine Business Certificate is available in the UofL Undergraduate Catalog.
