Leadership Graduate Certificates

Lead by doing: Positive change starts with you

If you’re interested in sparking meaningful change in your workplace or community, earning a graduate certificate in leadership from Creighton University is an excellent place to start. A certificate will provide foundational skills in leadership and well-being, negotiation and conflict resolution, or organizational leadership. While your studies won’t be as robust as they would be if you were earning a full master’s degree, you’ll graduate with a comprehensive, practical knowledge of the topics your certificate program covers.

No matter which certificate choose, you’ll gain practical leadership experience and build your professional network, and the skills you learn can be taken right from the classroom to your organization while you’re still learning.

Creighton makes it easy to fit a graduate certificate in your schedule. We offer flexible online programs that can be completed in a fraction of the time it takes to earn an advanced degree. If you change your mind and want to earn an advanced degree after all, you can apply most credits to a related master’s.
