UMDI is offering a new online Leadership Excellence Certificate program in collaboration with UMass Amherst Continuing & Professional Education and UMass Online

The UMass Donahue Institute (UMDI), in collaboration with UMass Amherst Continuing & Professional Education and UMass Online, is offering a new online Leadership Excellence Certificate program designed for the busy schedules and tight budgets that are standard in today’s organizational environment. Using the same approach as UMDI’s acclaimed face-to-face training, the Certificate is adapted to an online course structure that flexes around your schedule—offering both convenience and cost-savings for individuals or groups.

The 6 module certificate provides 30 training-hours of hands-on learning over six weeks in an interactive online classroom which will equip key personnel with the mindset and skills they need to become effective leaders.  Projects and case studies will be customized to provide opportunities for students to analyze leadership issues and concepts occurring in their own organizations, allowing for the development of real-time solutions.

Geared towards front-line and mid-level managers—particularly those who have been promoted through the ranks—this new Certificate program is a way for businesses, public agencies, and non-profit organizations to bring the high-level training UMDI is known for to their staff in a cost-effective and convenient way.

Since 1971 the UMass Donahue Institute has worked with non-profits, state agencies and corporations across the Commonwealth to provide organizational development expertise and leadership training.

Registration opens on March 15th for the next Certificate Program which begins on May 2nd.  Please submit the “Request Information” form by clicking “Inquire Now” to the right and we will email you a reminder closer to the registration date.
