Online Applied Leadership Certificate


Boise State University offers a fully online certificate program in Applied Leadership: Growing into a High-Impact Leader. This 12-credit program designed for non-traditional students or working adults who want to augment their current professional and leadership skills. Each course is packed with perspectives and activities students can immediately put to use where they work and live.

The primary focus of this program is “you,” and is best suited for students interested in self-reflection and professional growth. Regardless of academic major, individuals will gain deep insight into the challenges facing today’s leaders, will hone their own leadership style to address these challenges, and will connect with like-minded people.

Combine the Applied Leadership Certificate with a wide variety of majors – from history to health science – to enhance skills, career opportunities and your resume.
