Information Regarding Changes to the Certificate Program

The Center for Business Acceleration will strive to deliver its courselets and curriculums in accordance with the descriptions provided on the CBA website at the time of enrollment. However, in some situations it might be beneficial or necessary for the CBA to implement changes to courselets or curriculums. The changes will not be very substantial so as to have impact on students who have already started their courselet or curriculum. In some circumstances where it is necessary for the CBA to implement such changes after enrollment due to developments in the relevant subject, advances in teaching or evaluation practice, or requirements of accreditation processes, students will be notified of the changes made to courselets or curriculum immediately.
