The Executive Certificate program is designed for working professionals with management responsibilities who want to become more effective leaders and provide valuable assets to their organization.

Our Executive Certificate program helps you invest in your own future, emphasizing essential training in key business areas and giving you the tools and knowledge to expand your management skills and succeed in today’s evolving workplace. You come away with a deeper understanding leadership, strategy, and specific aspects of managing people and organizations. Because some certificate classes can apply to obtaining a part-time Drucker MBA or Executive MBA, this is a great way to preview and build a foundation for applying to either of these programs.

Program Highlights
  • We offer Executive Certificates in three key business areas: Strategy, Leadership, and General Management.
  • The program is flexible and designed around your schedule, with courses offered in the late afternoon and evening on weekdays and some courses on Saturdays. You will work closely with your academic advisor to design coursework that best fits your needs, your commute, and your schedule.
  • Tuition cost includes all books and course materials (mailed to students in advance of each course), as well as meals before each class.
  • More than 90 percent of Certificate students enroll in executive management degree programs.
