Supervision

Academic Certificate

Overview

This certificate can be taken alone or as a part of the Management Associate Degree program.

Like to manage others but need some more training officially?  This certificate is intended to train students for entry-level supervisory roles within virtually all organizations that employ managers. Students will be educated in important legal matters such as proper hiring and performance management as well as softer skills such as international business cultural awareness and personal finance. Graduates will also gain skills in Microsoft Excel that could lead to a Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. Today’s supervisors have to be able to balance multiple priorities and demands, and this certificate will prepare students for those pressures while enabling graduates to make a difference in the lives of the people they manage.

Careers

Organization Manager

This certificate as a stand-alone would be pursued by a student with a degree in another academic area such as liberal arts, engineering, healthcare, or accounting that does not prepare the employee to manage others in today’s workplace. Students would specifically be seeking management education in a variety of industries to help them move into new roles with people responsibility--different from their current non-managerial roles. An Organization Manager is entrusted with a leadership role and is responsible for overseeing a group of employees within the organization in an effort to improve its daily function.
