Antioch’s Women & Leadership Certificate Program will empower tomorrow’s leaders today by providing opportunities to develop the knowledge and personal skills that support future success for female leaders.
Antioch University Santa Barbara (AUSB) is pleased to announce the launch of its 10-month Women & Leadership Certificate Program (W&L) in January 2014. This innovative leadership training program will support the career advancement of female leaders, building on a platform of self-knowledge, respect, confidence, and passion across professional and community contexts.
For a comprehensive look at this unique program, prospective students are invited to attend an Information Session on Sat., November 9, 11:00 am–12:00 pm at the Antioch campus, 602 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara.
The hybrid W&L program takes advantage of AUSB’s virtual learning environment, with online classes taking place in between the three weekend residencies at AUSB’s beautiful downtown Santa Barbara campus:
Students will integrate the principles of Values-Based Leadership, examine gender issues facing today’s leaders, strengthen communication and problem-solving skills, and learn to expertly lead a team for the design and implementation of meaningful change in a range of business, non-profit, and public/political venues. Important issues will be addressed in relation to economic and social justice; the interrelationship of business, public/political, and non-profit sectors; work-life balance; self-care; mentoring; and networking.
Each student will closely collaborate with peers, faculty and community mentors to create, develop, and present an individual Experiential Leadership Project.
With strong support, students will also complete a personal implementation plan to fulfill their individual leadership goals and realize their vision of the future.
There are no formal academic prerequisites, other than prior business or community experience. Scholarship funds are available. Students who complete the W&L Program may also be eligible for a Pathway Program that provides financial incentives for enrolling in AUSB’s MBA Program in Social Business, Non-Profit Management, and Strategic Leadership, launching in September, 2014.
The Early Action Deadline for priority admission and scholarship consideration for the Women & Leadership Certificate Program is November 20, 2013. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis through December 2, 2013 (Final Application Deadline).
