Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership

While most companies agree that talent is their most important asset, they aren’t investing enough in development. Whether for individuals identified as high potentials by their organizations, or for individuals who choose to advance their own careers, the Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership - the most popular offered by Lehigh - provides comprehensive education in business acumen and leadership. It is formal recognition and acknowledgement of a strong commitment to professional development.

How do I Earn an Executive Certificate?

To earn an Executive Certificate, you must complete eight units of executive education programs of your choosing within a two-year period, with at least 50% of the units from the Management & Leadership area and the remaining content from Project Management or Supply Chain Management.  If you are interested in starting a certificate, please contact us to discuss the changes to the certificate process, given the need to go to solely online learning.

Programs are offered online throughout the year and can be completed in any order that works best with your schedule. You may indicate your intent to earn an Executive Certificate by emailing us at execed@lehigh.edu prior to completing your first program or any time after.
