  • Updates:
    • In recognition of July 4th Holiday, class will be held on Wednesday, July 5th that week. Otherwise, classes will take place on Tuesdays.

Successful researchers in engineering and the life and physical sciences face daily challenges managing and leading teams, communicating with business-oriented colleagues, and surmounting the hurdles associated with the commercialization of research. But doctoral students in these fields are seldom exposed to these situations before entering academia or industry. To address this gap, The Graduate School is partnering with Kellogg School of Management to offer a certificate program taught by Kellogg faculty that will equip promising post-candidacy doctoral students with the necessary business and leadership skills.

Classes will be held on Tuesdays during eight weeks of the Summer quarter (except for the July 4 University holiday when classes will be held on Wednesday of that week). Students will be introduced to business concepts and specific frameworks for effective management relevant to both for-profit and nonprofit sectors. They will also gain a basic understanding of strategy, finance, risk and uncertainty, marketing, accounting and leadership.
