Graduate Certificate in Management Leadership

Central to the progress and innovation of an organization, leadership is the ability to motivate others to act toward achieving a common goal. It is not related to typical notions of authority. Leadership skills require self-awareness, self-monitoring, social awareness, and relationship building. People with leadership skills can span all organizational levels and function areas. Students of the Graduate Certificate in Management Leadership will gain an in-depth understanding of the principals of effective leadership.

Students must complete all of the required and elective credits from the course options below and are expected to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above. Courses completed as a non-degree student are not eligible for application towards the certificate requirements.
