About this program

Graduate Certificate in Leadership

Hone your leadership skills in just 9 months.

Developed for high potential professionals aspiring toward leadership roles and experienced managers who want to grow as leaders, the Graduate Certificate in Leadership will help you build credentials quickly and gain competencies that can be put into action immediately in the workplace. Students can apply credits earned in this program towards the Jack Welch MBA and receive a tuition credit.

Program content

Through three graduate leadership courses, students will learn techniques often reserved for only high potential executives:

Leadership in the 21st Century

Leadership is different from management. Managers get predictable things done predictably. Leaders inspire action and adaptability in an unpredictable world. This course delves into the concepts, tools, and skills leaders need today. It combines theory and practice to examine such topics as strengthening emotional intelligence, motivating people to achieve strong results, managing conflict, leading change, aligning teams, and eliciting support from colleagues and bosses. In addition, this course lays out Jack Welch’s time-tested techniques for high-performance team leadership.

Business Communications & Executive Presence

Your career and ability to lead depend on effective communication. Communication is a learned skill that everyone can improve. This course will teach you techniques, often reserved for high potential executives, to advance your leadership presence, strategic communication, professional relationships, presentation performance, and workplace crisis management. You will sharpen your communication skills through targeted learning, practice, and coaching. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to optimize your online presence through strategic updates to your LinkedIn profile and peer feedback.

People Management

Early on in your career, professional success depends on your innate talents, how you develop those talents, and your initial career decisions. But once you become a manager, your ability to select, develop, promote and manage the right people becomes the most important determinant of success. In this course, students explore two general areas of people management: hiring and positioning the right players for organizational needs and managing people once the players are in place. Specific topics include sourcing and integrating new talent, managing strategic talent inventory, working with HR and organized labor, performance evaluations, and reward systems.
