Executive Management certificates provide managers with the opportunity to do advanced study in selected management topics. For some participants, certificates provide an introduction to graduate management education, and for others they prove to be valuable in updating past graduate degree work and exploring the latest advances relevant to their practice of management.
Three certificate programs are currently available.
- General Management
- Executive Leadership
Participants in certificate programs may apply for admission to a degree program. All certificate work completed for graded credit applies toward the total units required for a degree upon admission to that degree program.
Students enrolled in other CGU degree programs wishing to earn a certificate in the Executive Management Program may apply. Certificate courses must meet the distribution requirements outlined in the department brochure. Units from other departments do not count toward the Executive Management certificate series.
All CGU students from other schools or departments must meet the management experience requirement.
Specific requirements for each of the certificate programs are as follows.
General Management. 12 units of core courses are required.
Executive Leadership. 8 units of leadership courses are required.
Strategy. 8 units of strategy courses are required.
