Supervision and Leadership Foundations Certificate (SLFC)

(CIP Code 520201)

27 Semester Hours

The Supervision and Leadership Foundations Certificate program is designed to provide fundamental knowledge and entry-level skills necessary for careers in supervision, management and general business. The certificate is designed for those seeking a first job where a degree is not required, as an enhancement to current job responsibilities or for those in a technical career field seeking general business skills. The program offers a broad foundation of knowledge about organizations and how they operate, such as assessing organizational strategies and practices, applying sound management principles to real-life business situations, and understanding key functions such as business law, human resources, customer service, quality and operations management. It is beneficial for those who aspire to supervision and management positions as well as those who want a basic understanding of business principles and practices to enhance effectiveness in any position. This certificate is designed so that it can be completed entirely online, from placement, registration, and the purchase of books and supplies through course completion and graduation. Students may apply courses in the Supervision and Leadership Foundations Certificate toward the Associate Degree in Applied Science with a major in Management.
