Today’s business leaders must be able to inspire, motivate, build teams and foster long-term success. Now, more than ever, the ability to make informed decisions, manage a team and communicate clearly is in high demand.
With the goal of empowering students to be confident business leaders, Kutztown University’s Leadership Graduate Certificate teaches students how to problem solve, think critically and communicate effectively within an organization and among co-workers.
This graduate certificate is a 12-credit program for students who want to further their leadership careers without a full commitment to an MBA program. However, the concepts taught are MBA-level skills, and these credits can be used toward the full 30-credit Master of Business Administration if you choose to continue your studies.
What You’ll Learn
The Leadership Certificate requires only four graduate-level courses that can be completed in as little as 9 months.
Admissions Requirements for the Leadership Certificate
There are no prerequisite courses required to be considered for admission to the certificate program. Students with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline are encouraged to apply.
On Your Way to an MBA
Students who are enrolled in one of our certificate programs can apply for the MBA program at any time.
If a student has successfully completed this graduate certificate with an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher, the student can be directly admitted to the MBA program, subject to a grade review.
