On-campus Certificate Program

LSU’s Management & Leadership Certificate Program is the outgrowth of more than 50 years of providing professional development in the areas of supervisory effectiveness and organizational leadership.

Recognizing that today’s leaders must be able to manage individual employees as well as the overall business, this certificate program is a comprehensive personal and professional development experience covering a range of management competencies, including public speaking and finance.

The certificate program starts with our flagship course, “Fundamentals of Supervision” (FOS), as the foundation for management success. After completing FOS, you will take our follow-up course “Developing Your Managerial Effectiveness” to expand and strengthen your fundamental competencies.

In addition to these two core courses, you will take “Public Speaking: Personal & Professional” to improve your oratory skills and personal confidence, and “Finance for Non-Financial Managers” to assure you are prepared for the financial management demands of your position. The last course in the certificate program is an elective. This will allow you to address unique development needs and career goals.

Professional development courses are open to all participants, not just those pursuing a certificate program. These courses are non-credit and non-degree programs.
