Former Certificate Programs

Management Certificate Program

During the 2016-2017 academic year, the office of Employee & Organizational Development conducted an on-campus needs-assessment for our certificate programs. The results from this assessment identified the need and demand for professional certification options for leadership, as well as management. This led to the re-design of the former Management Certificate Program to meets the revised needs of leaders, managers, and supervisors currently employed at VSU. The result is the implementation of the new Professional Certificate in Leadership and Management program, which has launched during the Spring 2018 semester. 

What if I am currently enrolled in the former Management Certificate Program?

Participants in the Management Certificate Program will have the option to continue following the curriculum design of the former program or switch to the new Professional Certificate in Leadership and Management track. Those who select to remain in the former design will still earn full certificate credentials, as it is still a certificate program designed using the Adult Learning Principles and is certified by the Valdosta State University Continuing Education Department. New applicants will no longer be accepted into this program, however, and will be encouraged to apply to one of the two active certificate programs through the office of Employee & Organizational Development. 

If you have any questions regarding the certificate programs, please contact Ashley Cooper at aamyers@valdosta.edu or at 229-219-1276.
