Certificates of Professional Achievement

There is no separate fee required to become an Executive Scholar - you are automatically enrolled when you take your first qualifying program. However, anyone interested in the program is encouraged to complete a formal application. The application serves to inform the school of your intention to become an Executive Scholar, it helps the school monitor your progress through your track, and also serves as a tool to be used by you and the Executive Scholar Advisor in order to ensure that all programs in your track will qualify for a Certificate. The application is non-binding and does not obligate you to attend any programs. Your program choices can certainly change over time, as long as they still fit within the curriculum guidelines. Upon completion of the required programs, you will be awarded a Certificate of Professional Achievement.
