U of Florida Adds Business Certificate –

University of Florida Executive Education, a part of UF which helps experienced professionals advance their career through continuing education, will launch five online Business Executive Certificate Programs, beginning January 2013.

The certification programs include:

Each certificate program is three courses. With the exception of Tactical Leadership & Management, each program begins with the foundational courses Business Essentials I and II, which are designed to help students understand microeconomics, business law, marketing management, human resources, financial accounting, leadership, writing for business, and project management.

The Tactical Leadership & Management program, designed for those with an established knowledge of business, includes coursework in front-line leadership, with concepts in creating mutual accountability, and competing through innovation.

“In today’s highly competitive global market, companies are breaking the silo mentality in order to increase efficiency and productivity. To ensure that information is shared across departments, they’re hiring and promoting those with cross-functional knowledge and advanced management skills,” Ron Kirsch, Director of University of Florida Executive Education, said in a press release. “We’re proud to now offer these Executive Business Certificates online, allowing professionals across the country to gain must-have skills and a prestigious new UF credential.”
