The landscape of leading organizations is changing, and more companies are turning to coaches to increase their effectiveness and sustainability. To meet that demand, our Executive Coaching Certificate takes an innovative approach to developing the skills students need to improve the performance and satisfication of individuals and teams to achieve organizational goals.

This graduate-level certificate is one of only a few programs of its kind to be offered at higher education institutions in the US. It is built upon the International Coach Federation (ICF) competency model and the Graduate School Alliance for Executive Coaching (GSAEC) standards. It is also approved by the Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE) as a Board Certified Coach (BCC) program. 


The Executive Coaching Certificate is comprised of 5 courses (15 credit hours) and can be completed in 3-5 semesters. 

There are three core courses that focus on executive coaching theories and practice, the methods of coaching, and the skills needed to coach individuals and/or groups to achieve organizational goals. In addition to the core courses, you are able to tailor your experience by taking two electives of your choice. Learn more about the Coaching Certificate courses

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 any of the McColl School MBA programs.
