Graduate Certificate Leadership Online

Today's cross-functional teams and organizations require leaders who understand how to apply the collective expertise and capabilities of the group. But developing collaborative leadership skills is rarely on the agenda at most business schools or training programs.

Like its on-campus predecessor, the online Graduate Certificate program in Leadership is based on the belief that everyone is capable of leadership. The program studies every aspect of leadership dynamics—from the leader as an individual to his or her role as part of a team. It also examines the function of leadership within a broader organizational culture and explores the development of strategic leadership techniques.

Delivered entirely online, the program’s coursework exposes students to a series of alternative perspectives of leadership, including collaborative models. The heightened level of interaction that the online format enables helps reinforce the themes of collaboration and teamwork. And the course's action learning methods let participants build a personal model of leadership that they can put to immediate use in their workplace.
