Your academic counselor will help schedule your courses for a Bachelor in Science in Business with a Certificate in Leadership and Management. Many students enroll in the BSB program and add a Certificate in Leadership and Management or another a certificate later.
Leadership and management is a field of study focused on the skills necessary to lead and motivate people and teams.
In our Bachelor of Science in Business program with a Leadership and Management Certificate, you’ll learn how to communicate effectively, track business performance, hone your influential leadership skills and grow your ability to manage change. These abilities can help you prepare to be a business manager, general manager, operations director or learning/training and development director.
University of Phoenix does not offer undergraduate certificates solely focused on leadership. Leadership and management are complementary skill sets and work well when taught together.
Our Leadership and Management Certificate can help you understand the principles and practices of effective leadership while also focusing on key management concepts, such as planning, organizing and allocating resources. You’ll learn how to lead people and develop their strengths while also managing the day-to-day organizational foundations that support people’s growth and drive positive outcomes.
If you’d like to learn about management more exclusively, University of Phoenix does offer two management-focused undergraduate certificates: general management and project management. You can also take single leadership and management courses to help further your education.

Our standalone Leadership and Management Certificate approximate program length is eight months and 18 total credits.
