The Certificate

The Certificate Program offers two four-day modules.  Each unit is a coherent whole and may be taken independently. Graduates of the program must take both units and complete a work place based assignment.  Classes are similar to a graduate seminar.  Class size is small.  Interactive discussions are based on pre-readings and in-class presentations.

Designing and Managing Ethics Programs, provides an overview of designing, developing, marketing, implementing, monitoring, measuring, reporting, sustaining and improving ethics programs.

Leadership & Organizational Integrity is designed for executives, organizational ethics officers, and ethics trainers.  The workshop is based on evidence that ethics programs have limited effect unless we address the ethics of how we lead and manage people.  This unit discusses risks associated with executive leadership: how to mitigate those risks; knowledge, skills, and practices requisite for ethical leadership at executive and management levels; the impact of ethical leadership on employee commitment to integrity; how to reinforce employee commitment to ethics by leveraging ethical culture; setting compliance and ethics based standards; integrating those standards into the reward system; and effective principles of ethics training.  At the end of the course, groups will develop and present a one-day module for training executive leaders.
