Strategic Leadership: Certificate


Strategic leadership goes beyond managing others, encompassing all of the skills and capacities needed to navigate the complex analytical and human dimensions inherent in any leadership role.

The graduate certificate program in strategic leadership at the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics allows working professionals to build their leadership mindset and skillset to better manage individuals, teams and organizations. Students take the same courses offered in the Lerner MBA and learn how to effectively lead and influence others, build teams and support networks, manage change and set strategic organizational direction.

Both professionals who have previously earned an MBA and those who wish to develop specialized expertise to advance or redirect their career will benefit from this program.
