Managing People in the Public Sector Certificate

School of Business

Take the lead in the public sector

Go beyond basic leadership training for an in-depth exploration of the unique challenges of managing people in the public sector. Gain awareness of your own leadership capabilities through self-evaluation, then pair these findings with public sector-specific skills (like working with collective bargaining) to enact change within your organization and the greater public sphere, whether you lead five or 50 people.
