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 for CU-Boulder employees. The goal of this certificate program is to 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. The content of this certificate program is applicable to all professions and does not require a technical or engineering background.

The 2012 Employee Engagement Survey results reflected that employees at all levels of the campus had a strong desire for additional development programs to help them be more successful in their current and future positions. The Department of Human Resources recognizes the importance of providing growth opportunities, including management and leadership development programs such as this one, and is excited to offer this new program to our employees.

This new 12-credit hour certificate program has been designed with CU-Boulder employees in mind. In addition to being able to use the tuition reimbursement benefit to cover tuition, 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.

Employees interested in furthering their graduate level education may apply this certificate program towards a Masters in Engineering (ME), however up to three classes (9 credits) are often applicable towards other graduate degrees (MBA, etc.) as elective credits. For those interested in participating in these classes as non-credit, non-degree seeking participants, opportunities still exist to participate in either a classroom or distance learning environment.
