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 Coaching Certificate Programs is a 15-credit-hour, evening program. The required courses focus on executive coaching theories and practice, the methods of coaching, and the skills needed to coach individuals and/or groups. It can be completed on its own, as part of the MS in Organization Development (MSOD) or MA in Communications (MA COMM), or as an add-on to the Professional MBA (PMBA).
If you are a current student who wishes to earn the certificate, please contact your student advisor. Individuals who want to complete the stand-alone certificate, should apply to the McColl School of Business in Non Degree status. For more information about the program and/or admissions, please contact the McColl School Graduate Admissions Office at 704-337-2224.
