Leadership and Management Development (LMD) builds organizational capabilities…

Dr. Deborah Hurst

“By developing core characteristics of good leaders, employees will contribute to better outputs, better productivity and a better strategic environment.  LMD online courses are cost-effective solutions for organizations and associations who want their own in-house development programs for high performing employees, new managers, or the executive suite. LMD online courses are graduate-level courses created from segments of Athabasca University’s (AU) Online MBA for executives program.

I’m thrilled that we have created attractive and competitive online professional development options for organizations of all shapes and sizes.  I’m very proud of these online courses and of the positive feedback and we’ve received from organizations and students!”

Dean, Faculty of Business
