Effective leadership is multifaceted and complex. Salve Regina University’s graduate certificate in the dynamics of contemporary leadership develops skills that empower working professionals to lead individuals, groups and organized systems in a world that is constantly evolving.
Thinking Beyond Business as Usual
The graduate certificate in the dynamics of contemporary leadership is designed for professionals who are in a position to effect change in fields such as education, business, government, faith-based, health care, the military, law enforcement or the arts. Our uniquely designed program allows students to pursue a single graduate certificate for professional development or personal mastery, or stack certificates in dynamics and practice to work toward a master’s degree.
With a focus on self-mastery practice, interpersonal communication skills, leadership skill-development and systems thinking, our graduate certificate provides the background and theory for understanding leadership in context. Emphasizing a body/mind/spirit approach, we introduce both western and non-western principles and models, as well as the art of leading profound change and transformation.
Salve Regina's graduate certificate in the dynamics of contemporary leadership is designed for individuals who hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree and are seeking continued professional development.
Students in good academic standing who would like to continue their studies may apply to the M.A. in leadership dynamics and practice program and carry the credits forward. Students who complete both leadership certificates – the dynamics of contemporary leadership and the practice of integrated leadership – need only take two additional courses to earn the master’s degree.
