Online MBA with Certificate in Organizational Leadership

Today's business environment is fast-changing and becoming increasingly complex. In response, employers are recognizing the need for a new type of business professional: one who is agile, with a diverse skillset, and able to make organizational decisions with a systems-thinking mindset.

Champlain College recognizes the challenges of today's enterprises, as well as the need for professionals to differentiate themselves with a more focused area of specialization. That's why our online MBA in leadership not only delivers the technical skills and business concepts expected of a traditional business degree program, but also gives students a deeper understanding of who they are as leaders, with a focus on leading change in organizations and bringing together diverse people and perspectives to guide them toward a common goal.

If you are a business professional looking to hone your leadership skills, Champlain's online MBA with a concentration in leadership might be right for you!

Benefits of Earning a Graduate Certificate Alongside Your MBA

While a traditional MBA can be a very valuable tool to help position you for success in your career, there are many benefits to earning a graduate certificate in accounting alongside your MBA. Individuals who get an MBA with a concentration in accounting will graduate with experience in their area of specialization (and a credential to demonstrate it). They'll also be able to work with established, experienced business and accounting professionals. And they'll be able to differentiate themselves in today's competitive job market, increasing their chances of finding a new job or obtaining a promotion in their current organization. Getting an MBA with a graduate certificate in leadership is the best way to advance in your leadership career.
