More individual courses and certificate programs offered
Posted December 17, 2003 | Atlanta
The leadership team at Georgia Tech's DuPree College of Management listened to what top business executives had to say when asked about their training needs. In response, DuPree's Huang Executive Education Center has developed an array of new executive education programs which offer the latest in management theory as well as a flexible format.
"The new format of Georgia Tech's Executive Education Program is designed for the busy executive, and our new courses and certificate programs are driven by the needs of the business community," says Dan Stotz, director of Executive Education in the DuPree College.
Many of the multi-day courses offered in the past have been broken into individual modules so that employees can pick and choose the specific modules or classes that best fits their needs. Starting in January 2004 there will be four new executive certificate programs in the line up:
The General Management Certificate is designed for managers who need broader business knowledge for career advancement and can be completed in 15 days within three-years. The certificate includes 12 required topics and three days of electives.
The Advanced Technical Management Certificate expands technical managers understanding of the larger enterprise and the role of technology within the company. The certificate can be completed in 10 days within three-years.
The Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate is for professionals with an interest in the Six Sigma approach and methodologies or who wish to achieve Green Belt certification. This program is offered in two five-day modules spaced a month apart.
The Information Technology Management Certificate is designed to help IT professionals enhance their ability to think, plan and act strategically. The certificate can be completed in 12 days within three years and includes eight required classes and four elective classes.
The College also continues the popular Finance and Accounting for Non-Financial Managers and the Institute for Program Management offerings.
In addition to the open-enrollment courses and certificate programs, the Huang Executive Education Center offers customized programs for companies seeking a training program tailored specifically to their needs.
