Leadership Development Series

Available at: Online part-time


Are you...

  • Aspiring to a supervisory/leadership position?
  • Front line or mid-level management?
  • Self-employed in a small business setting?

Developed and administered in association with Ontario's community colleges, leading business and industry professionals, this new college certificate will enhance leadership skills and develop new skills to help meet career and organizational objectives. The program builds on existing skills and experience and applies those skills to workplace situations. Content includes communications, ethics, performance management, change management, team building, planning and project management. 


For your convenience, some courses are offered both in-class and online. Some online courses can be started at different times throughout the semester, just choose the course date that fits your schedule. The demand for part-time courses has increased to the point that we recommend you register early to ensure your acceptance into the course. Online courses are easily identified by CS at the beginning of the course code (i.e. CSSE 65 Accounting Basics 1) Textbooks and additional materials may be required for these courses. YOU are responsible for purchasing your textbooks and additional materials for all courses. Please make a note of your course code (CS##) and see the bottom of this page for book order procedure.

Graduates from the program may find employment as aspiring supervisors/managers, business owners/managers, coordinators, department and plant managers, directors, human resource personnel, senior support/clerical staff, supervisors, and team leaders.

    Health Requirements



    As a graduate of the Behavioural Psychology Degree program, I attribute many of my accomplishments and successes to this program. The program instills confidence in its students, encourages them to perform at an impressive standard, and fosters intrigue for learning and the growing field of Behavioural Psychology. It also enables students to adapt and overcome obstacles in both their professional and personal lives. I would recommend the program to anyone!
