The GMercyU Difference

This leadership certificate program offers you the opportunity to enhance your skillset with MBA-level coursework in human resources, leading global teams and projects, and corporate social responsibility. Unlike other leadership certificate programs, we offer:

  • Small classes with plenty of personal attention from faculty
  • An emphasis on leadership through service and ethical decision-making
  • Accelerated course schedules featuring seven-week course blocks, so you can focus on one set of concepts at a time
  • Broader leadership skills development integrated into coursework, including presentation, writing, and research skills
  • Extra support for those who earned their bachelor degrees in fields unrelated to business

With our leadership certificate program, you can take your career to new heights, while learning to manage, motivate, and mobilize diverse global teams.

No prerequisites are required to apply.
