This certificate will prepare you to successfully manage the new normal in organizations—constant change—and to understand how a dynamic, and sometimes volatile, work environment affects people. Communication skills are strongly emphasized.

Our organizational development certificate will:

  • educate you to manage in a rapidly changing environment;
  • prepare you to help others successfully adapt to change;
  • give you the tools to collect and analyze information to understand and manage change;
  • allow you to effectively communicate within organizations.
