Online Leadership and Management Development Certificates of Completion
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.
Leading or managing without learning, is neither leading nor managing.

Program Director, Leadership and Management Development
The AU Advantage
Our online leadership development courses are different than other professional development or executive education options. Our courses are graduate level; structured with course objectives and focused learning outcomes specifically designed for managers and professionals with significant work experience who are poised for advancement.
Our courses are also developed and presented by professors, who are typically academic faculty from AU, other academic institutions or expert practitioners in their field. Their role is not to lecture, but rather to guide group discussions and collaborations to achieve more effective peer learning.
AU is recognized by the Government of Alberta and is a respected, recognized university with a proven track record.
Athabasca University’s programs are recognized for their quality education and exceptional graduates around the world.
An Education Tailored to Your Needs
Apply what you learn while you work. Use your current employer as a case study in order to take away tangible and applicable experience from your course work.
Year after year, roughly 70% of new students have been referred by a current student or alumnus.
Professors, student services coordinators, help desk advisors, learning services staff, and student and alumni relations staff all support your learning.
Work Around Your Schedule
Our unique online structure makes it possible to work around your job, family life, or whatever your priorities are.
