The Department of Human Resources and the Lockheed Martin Engineering Management Program are excited to announce the launch of an exclusive Leadership and Management Graduate Certificate Program. Designed with CU-Boulder employees in mind, the program will help our current and future leaders develop and refine their leadership skills and learn new ways to measure and enhance organizational effectiveness with practical application. Course content is applicable to all professions and does not require a technical or engineering background.
Our employees will be able to use the tuition reimbursement benefit to cover tuition, and employees selected to participate in this exclusive program will be allowed to attend classes during work time and the employee’s department will pay for the costs of any fees and books.
