Change Management Certificate

Our Change Management certificate is focused on the people side of the organization, covering topics in consulting, the ability to work and improve teams, and understanding the role of the organization development practitioner. Change is taking place every day both in and outside of organizations. Change management enhances effective organizational change by planning for it, managing it, and reinforcing it. Leaders who successfully adopt change drive organizational success and positive outcomes. Our instructors are continually enhancing course materials to bring in current topics, practices, and research that you can immediately put into practice.

Certificates can be completed as a standalone credential or while pursuing any of our graduate degree programs. All certificates can be completed within one academic year, taken one at a time each 8 week session and are all asynchronous.
