Executive Certificate in Management Program

The McIntire Executive Certificate in Management Program offers a strong foundation in management practices and concepts. Developed by faculty at the top-ranked McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia, the program is currently offered in India through a partnership with Easy Educate. Designed to provide the skills and tools required for success in today’s competitive global business environment, this series of 10 online courses is designed to meet the needs of motivated business people and managers in a wide range of industries.

To excel in today’s business world, managers must continually work to refine and update their skills. This online program is tailored for individuals with 4-25 years of workplace experience and the potential to excel in a management or supervisory role. Participants will learn how to look at a business and identify opportunities for improvement, and will also gain the knowledge and skills necessary to lead the requisite change.

Program​ Structure

The program consists of 10 courses lasting four weeks each, delivered over a 12-month period. The materials can be viewed any time of day, at the participant’s own pace and convenience. Upon completion of the 10-course series, participants will receive a completion certificate from the McIntire School of Commerce Foundation.

The online material, while challenging, provides participants with an opportunity to view the instruction at their own pace, to review when needed, and to pause at various points to consider major learning points. For each session, discussion questions will be posted on the Participant Discussion Forum; they can be shared with a small group or considered on your own. Questions can also be posted on the Questions for the Instructor area.

Weekly multiple-choice practice assessments review the major concepts and function as practice opportunities to self-assess progress. If you submit an incorrect answer, you’ll be prompted to find the correct answer and then re-take the assessment.

In the fourth week, “Review Week,” content is summarized and presented in video format, pulling together all the learning objectives and lessons from each course, and a live 60- to 90-minute webinar is offered for review and Q&A, all in preparation for a final graded assessment.
