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
