Equip Your Employees

Now, more than ever, organizations have to be adaptable, responsive, and effective to grow and thrive. The same holds true for employees. To help organizations and employees succeed in the face of the changes and challenges of today’s workplace, the University of Northwestern is offering the Custom Graduate Certificate in Ethical Leadership. The program gives businesses, like yours, the opportunity to equip your employees with the knowledge and integrity they need to lead effectively and responsibly.

A Perfect Fit

You’ll work closely with our staff and faculty to assemble a certificate program that meets your organization’s needs. Our professors will teach to the specific areas in which you’d like to see your organization develop, such as effective communication, team building, or conflict management. The customized curriculum is aligned perfectly with your organization’s functions, allowing your employees to immediately apply what they learn in the classroom to their work. It’s also a convenient program for your employees, allowing them to earn graduate-level credits without committing to a full degree program.

Northwestern’s mission is to provide Christ-centered higher education, equipping students to grow intellectually and spiritually, to serve effectively in their professions, and to give God-honoring leadership in the home, church, community, and the world.
