The Leadership Certificate Program: Critical Skills for Emerging Leaders
Critical Skills for Emerging Leaders is a certificate program designed to help supervisors and managers develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their leadership roles at NYU.
Who should enroll in the certificate program?
This program is recommended for all new supervisors / managers with less then 18 months of leadership experience. Any supervisor / manager interested in improving their leadership skills should also consider participating in this program.
Critical Skills for Emerging Leaders includes five core modules and a variety of electives that provide the new leader with the tools they need to be successful. Though most of the programs are delivered through classroom programs, several programs are offered online and can be completed at your convenience.

Participants seeking a certificate, may complete the core modules and electives in a single semester, or may choose to complete them over several semesters. We strongly encourage participants seeking the certificate to complete the program within the 1 year.
Enrolling in and Completing the Program
Any supervisor or manager can enroll in the individual courses in the certificate program through NYUiLearn. It is not necessary to enroll in the certificate program. Your courses will be tracked and managed in NYUiLearn. You can view all course completions from Fall 2009 by signing in to NYUiLearn and clicking on the transcript button in the training records tab.
Certificates will automatically be sent out within 4-6 weeks after the semester in which all the requirements are completed.
NYU staff and administrators may also enroll in any of the core module or elective leadership courses without committing to the complete certificate program.
