Coaching Certificate Program
The Coaching Certificate Program at the McColl School of Business is one of only a few programs of its kind offered at higher education institutions in the world. It is designed for the individual who already holds a baccalaureate, masters or doctoral degree, or for those already enrolled in a Queens University of Charlotte Masters Program who are looking to achieve a coaching concentration.
The program was built upon the International Coach Federation (ICF) competency model and the Graduate School Alliance for Executive Coaching (GSAEC) standards. In March 2012, the Coaching Certificate Program was approved by the Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE) as a Board Certified Coach (BCC) program.
The McColl School recently added a new path to the Coaching Certificate. Both Coaching Certificate Programs contain 15 credit hours worth of course work. The required courses focus on coaching theories and practice, the methods of coaching, and the skills needed to coach individuals and/or groups. The traditional CCP is an evening program that can be completed on its own or as part of the MS in Organization Development (MSOD) or Professional MBA (PMBA) programs. The newest path to the Coaching Certificate is a low-residency program housed within the MS in Executive Coaching (MSEC) program. For more information about the differences in the format of these programs, please contact the McColl School Graduate Admissions Office at 704-337-2224.
