Leadership Programs

Leadership development at NYU advances the mindset, knowledge, and skills necessary to effectively lead yourself, others, thinking, and results at the level expected of each role, in order to accomplish the mission of the University.

To foster leadership development across NYU, the Office of Talent, Learning, and Organizational Development plans, designs, and leads a variety of innovative NYU programs and workshops for administrative managers.


Programs benefit different leaders at different phases in their leadership journey:

Transitioning to Supervision

The Transitioning to Supervision program is designed to help employees who are supervising others for the first time and features an action plan for the first 180 days on the job.

Critical Skills for Emerging Leaders

The Critical Skills for Emerging Leaders certificate program focuses on the fundamentals of employees successfully leading at NYU and offers both online and classroom-based courses.

Building Leadership Excellence

The Building Leadership Excellence program for mid-level leaders instills insights, knowledge, and skills managers need to succeed in current and future leadership roles at NYU.


Workshops on topics of importance to leaders – including change management, coaching, interviewing for exceptional hires, handling difficult conversations, and situational leadership – are available in both classroom and online formats. The professional development course listing is communicated each semester to employees. Registration for all workshops is on NYUiLearn. Leadership development workshop course numbers have the prefix LDR.
