Through the UTSA Executive Education Leadership Institute, participants develop and enhance core skills that are fundamental to organizational success. Our certificate programs provide professional development, practical experience, and tools to help participants improve organizational effectiveness.
Many of today’s aspiring leaders have a lack of formal training in fundamental managerial and leadership skills. A recent study reported that less than 50% of the participating managers received any management or leadership development. Mentorship or formal sponsorship opportunities are also often not available, and this is even more true for minority populations. The Center for Professional Excellence (CPE), at UTSA’s College of Business, is addressing this need by offering a Leadership Institute Certificate in Governance.
Our Governance track is built around nine core courses in leadership, strategy, and professional development. In addition to the core courses, three customized courses on governance are led by faculty expert Michael L. McDonald, Ph.D.. Participants will both develop and hone governance skills that are fundamental to top management success. Targeted professional development and dedicated mentorship will also help participants bridge the gap between the c-suite and governance positions they desire.
