Emerging Leaders Certificate


Designed for professionals new to management (five years or less) and those aspiring to take on management positions, the Emerging Leaders certificate program introduces and reinforces five key principles of leadership: Self-Knowledge, Valuing Others, Integrity, Personal Accountability and Change Management.

Earn the certificate by completing six core programs and two electives in as little as 18 months. Courses can also be taken individually.


There is a $95 enrollment fee to secure your spot in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment, and a meeting with a coach to interpret the results.
