Team Leader Certificate

Program Description

Students who enroll in the Team Leader Certificate program will pursue a three-semester course of study designed to give students a more detailed understanding of business topics that build upon the courses found in the Lead Employee Certificate program. This certificate helps provide a foundation toward the completion of the Business Management and Marketing degree.

Students who are interested in the Team Leader Certificate will find that the courses in the curriculum are also needed for completion of the Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Management and Marketing.


Gainful Employment

Gainful employment is one important measure that students and parents should pay attention to as they examine colleges and programs. All non-degree programs must be designed to lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation in order to be deemed eligible for federal student aid. These programs are generally less than 2 years in length and result in a certificate.
