Leadership is the ability to move others in a unified manner toward a common goal. It is not related to typical notions of authority. Rather, it is a skill that requires self-awareness, self-monitoring, social-awareness, and relationship building. Leadership
is employed across all organization functions, and thus is the central source of progress and innovation in all organizations. This graduate certificate educates students in the principles of effective leadership.
Completion of all credits of the coursework listed below
Achievement of at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average at the time of completion
In addition, students should be aware of the following course application limitations:
Courses taken as a non-degree student are not eligible to be applied towards the certificate.
Students may only apply a course towards two program requirements (for example, MBAD 6224 may only be applied towards the MBA and one graduate certificate; the course cannot be applied towards the requirements of any other degree or certificate program
beyond the two programs).
Students who opt to complete two graduate certificates may only double count up to six credits between the two. All remaining requirements (typically, 18 credits for two certificates) must be unique to each certificate.
