May Deadline for Leadership Certificates

May 3rdeCornell is phasing out the Leading Management Teams and the 4-course Executive Leadership certificates. Although people love them, they are ready for a makeover.

If you are partway through and need to finish either of these certificates, please contact eCornell to sign up for your remaining courses before the May 3, 2010 deadline. If timing is an issue, remember that you will have until December to finish these certificates.
Starting May 4, 2010 you can enroll in the new 6-course Executive Leadership certificate.  This certificate will be enhanced with the addition of two courses: Unlocking your Leadership Potential and Overcoming Challenges to Leaders and Their Teams. If you’re looking for a leadership program that emphasizes personal growth and the acquisition of powerful tools for challenge management, this is it.

HR Director’s Certification: Just Ask Phillip

If you’re an HR professional who would like to develop the leadership and business skills needed to lead human resources function, you need to investigate the Human Resources Directors Certification from Cornell University and eCornell. The HRDC offers a practical, business driven approach to HR leadership.

This Ivy League credential is offered entirely online with the flexibility to be completed in as little as 4 or 5 months. Unlike the extended time and financial commitment of a Master’s degree program in human resources, the HRDC offers significantly faster and higher ROI.

To learn more about this engaging, graduate-level program, call Phillip Kaine, Cornell ILR School 2008 Graduate and eCornell’s HRDC expert at 866-326-7635, x4207.  Learn more about how the HR Directors Certificate can make an impact on your career.
