Includes MBA, Fraud and Forensics, and Professional Counseling Programs

Pittsburgh, Pa. – Carlow University announces a new special graduate certificate program for professionals looking for specialized credentials in business administration, fraud and forensics, and professional counseling.

“These are new options for people who want additional expertise in ‘in-demand’ fields such as project management—as well as help prepare them for professional and industry certifications, such as the Fraud Examiners (CFE) exam,” said Deanne D’Emilio, Carlow’s provost and vice president of Academic Affairs. 

The new 9-to-11 credit programs would be offered in-class or online in Carlow’s Master’s of Business Administration (MBA), Master’s of Science in Fraud and Forensics (MFF), and Master’s of Science in Professional Counseling (MSPC). 

Students could concentrate in project management, health management, or human resources tracks in the MBA program; drug and alcohol or trauma counseling in the professional counseling program; and fraud and forensics. 

Carlow is offering each special graduate certificate program at a flat rate of $4,995. For more information, please visit
