The Franchise Management Certificate consists of two unique sessions which can be completed in any order and/or independently. Each session comprises an online component, which must be successfully completed prior to attending a three-day face-to-face component. CFE Credits from the ICFE will be granted upon completion of either/each session as outlined below:

  • Online Component = 175 CFE Education Credits
  • Face-to-Face Component = 500 CFE Education Credits

Students that complete both Sessions I & II within a 2-year period will be eligible for the Certificate in Franchise Management from Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies.
