The Key Executive Leadership Certificate

Based on the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) developed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Key Executive Leadership Certificate creates a participative and rigorous learning environment where students acquire contemporary public management knowledge, values, and skills; develop the personal leadership capacity needed to implement what they learn; transform themselves from good managers to extraordinary leaders; and become lifelong learners.

Starting in the 2023-2024 Academic Year, Cohorts starting in Fall will be In Person, and Cohorts starting in Spring will be Virtual!
