The Management Certificate Program is a 6-week program that provides training to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars on a wide range of foundational management skills that are often not taught in the classroom or formally in a lab setting yet are expected for management positions in industry and the academy. Skills will be useful for research and non-research careers. This program launched in the Fall of 2020.
What You'll Learn
Skills in three broad catagories: 1) management in the real world, 2) finances, and 3) effective team management.
Obtain a broad range of transferable management skills for both academic and non-academic careers.
Earn a Management Certificate upon completion.
Practice what you are learning through interactive practicums.
Who Should Apply
This program is open to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from all disciplines. Priority enrollment is given to students closest to graduating.
To receive the Management Certificate, participants will be required to complete: 6 Core Courses which includes the Practicums, and 3 Elective Courses. Elective courses can be completed throughout the academic year.
Elective courses are open to non-certificate participants. To register for 1 or more Electives, visit the events page on our CampusGroups page.
Alumni will provide current students a greater sense of the realities of stepping into a management position in various industries. Specifically, panelists will share their professional management experience and speak on broad topics including how to manage diverse teams, challenges, and provide advice on how to land your first management role. The goal is to show participants what a manager's role is and how much it varies in different sectors. Participants will have time to ask questions.
Learn about ethics in management and learn the process to create your own personal and professional ethical code of conduct. Participants will think about their own ethical perspective, discuss how to incorporate personal values and commitments into their decision-making and recognize complex and complicated ethical dilemmas.
