The Post-Baccalarueate Certificate in Enterprise Architecture is intended for students who do not have the time or funds to invest in a 32-credit Master's program. The program requirements include 12 credits of graduate coursework in enterprise architecture, business architecture, data architecture, and application and technology architecture. These required courses are complemented by 6 credits of advisor-approved electives in Digital Sciences or related area.

The Certificate in Enterprise Architecture focuses on assisting organizations to review and improve their investments in technology and to ensure that their digital information, applications, and technology are fully aligned with business goals and objectives. Graduates will know how to develop detailed blueprints of an organization's current state, to work with the stakeholders to prepare a vision of a future architecture, to prepare an implementation roadmap, and to execute technology and business change.

This certificate can assist graduates to prepare for a career as a computer system architect, enterprise architect, information architect or solution architect.
