With capable leadership, institutional changes encounter less resistance, and alliances of people and resources can be created to support them. This is true in small companies, large organizations, communities, and even social movements. When change becomes essential, whether in order to take advantage of new opportunities or to find long-term solutions to problems, it is critical that it be carefully led, not just imposed.
The New School confers the Certificate in Leadership and Change for completion of a structured program of study that prepares management professionals to be effective leaders of institutional change. A certificate attests to successful completion of a short set of courses designed to establish proficiency in a specific skill set. It is not an academic degree, but a permanent record is maintained and transcripts are available. Students in certain master's degree programs of The New School may be able to earn the certificate concurrently with their master's degree.
