Why This Program Is Needed In order to remain competitive, organizations are seeking leaders who possess increasingly specialized skillsets. To address this need for high-level specialization, the Sandermoen School of Business is pleased to now offer online Master Certificates in each of its specialty stream concentrations.
For Whom This Program Is Designed The online Master Certificates are designed for working professionals who have already obtained an advanced degree and now wish to gain specialized knowledge in a specific field in order to add value and enhance the performance of their organizations. The Certificates consist of three specialty stream courses that focus exclusively on the topic of the stream and one Consulting Project course designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills obtained in the specialty courses. All courses leverage an interactive learning model that encourages collaboration, allowing professionals to engage and network with both each other and with the professor.
Timeline Each Certificate consists of four courses: three specialty stream courses and a Consulting Project course. Courses are completed in a seven-week fixed-agenda format. If each course is taken consecutively, the Certificate can be completed in approximately seven months.
The Online Experience To maximize the global learning experience throughout the specialty stream courses, our students will participate in live virtual classes (vClasses) with experienced leaders from global organizations. Our students and faculty are not limited by geographical boundaries, providing a new educational experience that allows learners to think with a global perspective while working on case studies and projects with other colleagues from around the world.
The Consulting Project course is completed in a seven-week fixed-agenda format, but does not make use of the vClass component. Instead, students work independently to create a consulting project where they will approach a company, identify a business challenge, and work to solve the issue. The project will allow students to incorporate the skills and knowledge obtained in the previous three courses.
