Certificate in Management

For the best managers, every decision is a chance to double its returns. The noncredit Certificate in Management exposes current and future leaders to a broad field of management sub-specialties, familiarizing them with the decisions they'll make before they arrive to extract the greatest possible value from employees and entire departments.

How You'll Earn It

Professionals can earn their noncredit certificate by completing any four Executive Education programs over a four-year period. While similar in length and proximity to business practice, programs vary by topic material, offering participants the chance to tailor their curriculum to their purpose. Not sure which programs will best fit your needs? Our Lifelong Learning team is here for you - to help you evaluate and compare programs, and build the best learning journey to meet your goals.
