UTD’s Global Leadership EMBA Program
To Offer Three Post-Graduate Certificates

New Online Programs to Focus on Strategy, Operations, Human Resources

RICHARDSON , Texas (Oct. 25, 2005) – The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) School of Management’s Global Leadership Executive MBA (GLEMBA) Program is launching three new post-graduate certificate programs designed to help participants learn, understand and then lead—at the global level—in the disciplines of market development, strategy, technology-based operations and human resources.

Registrations are now being taken for the three new certificate programs, which are especially geared for managers faced with the growing reality of worldwide competition throughout business.

Each of the certificate programs is a six-month, multi-course offering that is delivered via online technologies and in classes and workshops in two on-campus weekend retreat sessions. All three programs require participants to hold an undergraduate degree and have a minimum of five years’ experience in a relevant managerial or senior position. Other requirements vary.

The 15-credit-hour Graduate Certificate of Global Strategy course is geared to mid-level managers who hold an MBA degreeor who have been working as a marketing executive. The 13-credit-hour Graduate Certificate of Global Operations course is designed for senior professionals and managers with a degree in a technical discipline. The 14-credit-hour Graduate Certificate of Global Human Resources course is aimed at mid-level human-resource managers.

Each program offers participants specialized courses leading to in-depth understanding of how globalization affects their area of business expertise. The School of Management will issue a certificate of completion to those who fulfill program requirements.

“These innovative certificate programs enable participants to acquire critical knowledge quickly and conveniently,” said GLEMBA Director Dr. Anne Ferrante.
