Leading Organizational Change Graduate Certificate

The Department of Leadership and Organizational Administration offers a 9-hour graduate certificate in Leading Organizational Change. 

Leaders are constantly confronted with the need to maintain organizational viability in the face of a changing external environment.  This nine-hour program addresses the influence of an organizational culture and climate on organizational change, the impact of strategic planning on implementing change, and the importance of social influence processes for supporting change and minimizing resistance to change.

The following courses, which can be completed in any order, are required to complete this certificate:
