Leadership and Management Development Courses

Online LMD courses provide graduate level professional development opportunities designed for managers and professionals with significant work experience who are poised for advancement.

Enhance your leadership skills quickly and effectively online, at the time and place that works for you

Online Leadership and Management Development (LMD) courses provide graduate level professional development opportunities in two ways: scheduled online courses for individuals, and custom-tailored solutions for organizations. Our leadership development courses focus on immediate workplace applicability, addressing specific management or leadership skill areas with curriculum adapted from Athabasca University’s (AU) highly successful online MBA for executives.

How courses work

All online leadership development courses are four weeks in length and are paced, meaning there are scheduled start and end dates, and assignment deadlines within each course. Courses are also asynchronous—meaning you are never required to be online at a particular time.

Online LMD for Organizations

Our LMD team works with you to understand your organization’s development needs and offers a full range of online professional development solutions to meet each goal.

An organizational needs analysis allows our LMD team to recommend the appropriate online approach to address the unique development goals you have for your employees. Whether through our open enrollment online courses, a complete custom-tailored online program designed for your organization, or a co-branded online certificate program to complement your in-house training, our LMD team will build online professional development solutions for you.

All LMD online courses encourage participants to apply new theory to their day-to-day work issues, leading to immediate workplace impacts and high levels of knowledge retention.

Leadership and Management Development (LMD) builds organizational capabilities…

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!”
