Certificate in Organizational Leadership and Communication

Professional Studies

Today's employers expect applicants with bachelor's degrees to possess a broad range of professional leadership skills, from communication and coordination to organization and critical thinking. But with more and more professionals choosing specialized degree programs, employers are finding it increasingly difficult to find and hire applicants who have the general professional skills they need to fill vital management and leadership positions.

That's why we created the 12-credit, online University of Wisconsin Certificate in Organizational Leadership and Communication. The program is specially designed to bring busy adult learners key qualities from the Organizational Leadership and Communication bachelor's degree coursework. Completing this certificate can give you a standalone credential or be your first step in pursuing your Organizational Leadership and Communication degree. Enroll now and you could complete your certificate in as little as two eight-week terms!

The online certificate is a great choice if:

  • You have at 30 credits from an accredited college or university
  • You have a bachelor's degree but want an up-to-date credential
  • You'd like to sample the curriculum before committing to a two-year bachelor's degree completion program
