required for program
A graduate certificate in leadership introduces graduate level study with essential management strategies.
At Northwestern, you will learn in a Christ-centered environment that challenges you to invest in others as you grow both spiritually and intellectually. You will acquire a unique perspective about how faith and leadership intersect. Our faculty teach a leadership philosophy built on biblical ethics and a Christian worldview. You will also develop a professional network and lasting friendships as you interact with professors and other students.
The Graduate Certificate in Leadership is fully transferable toward the completion of the Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) or Master of Business Administration (MBA), should you want to continue your studies. Students entering the program must already have a bachelor's degree.
If you are in a leadership position and are possibly interested in graduate level study, this is a great first step.
The professors know a lot about their field, and they are succinct and can teach quite a bit in a short amount of time. I've seen this in every class I've had.
