Interested in applying for the all-new online graduate certificate in business journalism?
We provided an interactive info session and introduced prospective students to our nationally-recognized faculty members. Check out the archived materials below.
Offered at Arizona State University by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, this 15 credit-hour program includes five graduate-level courses taught solely online. Check out the official announcement and review the program’s FAQ page.
The Reynolds Center has trained more than 20,000 journalists worldwide since 2003, and our long-time home at ASU’s Cronkite School – one of the top journalism schools in the United States – means we’re able to take our business journalism training to the next level with a fully-accredited graduate certificate.

Andrew Leckey, Reynolds Center President and Endowed Chair at the Cronkite School, will teach the first course in August, “Issues in the Coverage of Business and the Economy.”
While explaining why journalists should consider a graduate certificate in business journalism, Leckey said, “Quality coverage of people and their money is something that does not go out of style.”
The deadline to apply for the first Fall 2014 course is July 31.
Applications will continue to be accepted throughout the academic year on a rolling basis. Click here for more information on how to apply for graduate admission.
