Choosing a Business Skills Certificate

Many students who enter the college do so as “undecided”. Students should make use of the college resources designed to assist with choosing a program certificate or degree program. Most certificate programs in the Business and Information Systems provide great starting wages and excellent income growth over 5 years. The California Community College Chancellor’s office has designed a Salary Surfer tool to assist with college planning.

After reviewing salary information look for specific program information in the Riverside City College Catalog then visit a faculty advisor in the department or the program website. Many programs are short-term and can be completed in 16 weeks in “Certificate in a Semester” program scheduling. Faculty advisors can also provide more detailed information regarding course offering schedules.
