The MBA Program’s new Change Leadership Management (CLM) Certificate Program, launching on July 3, secured three executive fellows to teach alongside Providence College School of Business faculty members. This year’s fellows include Brad Artery, CEO of Launch Trampoline Park; Mark D’Arcy, CIMA® Senior Vice President – Relationship Manager at Fidelity Investments; and Mary Fox, Assistant Vice President, Diversity and Inclusion Manager at FM Global.
The CLM Certificate Program provides high-performing employees the opportunity to hone their expertise in managing change, organizational effectiveness, and collaborating to meet business needs. While PCSB faculty will provide course instruction, the executive fellows will offer students real-world insights into these critical thinking and change leadership competencies.
The program features three management courses designed to provide students with a rapid foundational education in team collaboration, decision making, and change leadership.
MBA 676: Organizational Effectiveness Through People and Teams, co-taught by D’Arcy and Dr. John Schibler, Practitioner Faculty of Management, will explore motivating and managing employees and teams to achieve organizational goals.
MBA 681: Self Leadership, co-instructed by Dr. Matthew Eriksen, Professor of Management, and Artery will assist students in developing the self-awareness and mindfulness required to be an authentic and effective leader.
MBA 698: Special Topics in Management: Leading from the Middle, led by Dr. Deirdre Snyder, Assistant Professor of Management, and Fox, intends to enhance students’ understanding of how to make decisions and lead change.
Completion of these three courses earns students nine credits, which can be counted towards students’ PC MBA degree. Those students who successfully complete the CLM Certificate Program will be considered for expedited admission into the PC MBA Program and a GMAT waiver for up to one year after certificate completion.
Prospective students interested in enrolling in the CLM Certificate Program should submit applications to the MBA Office by June 1, 2017. Limited spots are available for this unique, first-of-its-kind offering by the MBA Program, so visit our website to learn more today!
