Thrive in Modern Car Dealership Management

In the U.S., car dealerships employ more than a million people. A modern auto dealership is a sophisticated business in an industry with an appetite for talented, success-oriented people with real training in managing a dealership. The UNT Dallas auto dealership management certificate provides full-time students and working professionals an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of successful dealership management operations and the principles of auto retailing.

This is NOT automotive repair. More than horsepower and towing capacity, this program provides an in-depth exploration of the management, marketing and legal/compliance challenges encountered by managers in a major segment of the U.S. economy. The program complements a general business degree, and can open robust career opportunities for graduates.

This program is also available as a stand-alone certificate for working professionals currently working in the automotive/dealership industry looking to advance their careers.
