The certification exams and requirements were developed and designed jointly with Paul Farris, Author of Marketing Metrics 4e, and Professor of Marketing at the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. There are two requirements to qualify to sit for the certification exam. First, that the appropriate modules for the certificate have been completed (as noted above). Second, that a score 100% is achieved on all modules in the particular certification (regardless of any in class requirements).

Upon successful completion of the certification exam (80% or higher score), an electronic certificate is created that is valid for five years.  A unique link is provided that may be integrated with a LinkedIn profile or an electronic resume. Faculty should contact MBTN at the beginning of the semester if they would like the certification exams to be available for their students (but again, the appropriate modules must be part of the curriculum).  There is no additional cost for the certification process or to take the certification exam when used with the appropriate modules.
