Certificate of Business Excellence

The complexities of today's global business environment requires leaders to continually acquire and hone new skills. At UC Berkeley Executive Education, we foster an optimal learning environment for professionals looking to reach new levels of success in their careers on a timeline that works with their busy schedules.

The Certificate of Business Excellence is an opportunity to gain a mark of distinction from a world-class university through concentrated, 2-5 day executive education programs. The program is designed for leaders like you - leaders who want to challenge convention. Leaders who want to take intelligent risks and accept reasonable failure.  Leaders who understand there is still more to learn.

The core curriculum for Certificate of Business Excellence is centered around four academic pillars:

  • Leadership & Communication
  • Entrepreneurship & Innovation 
  • Strategy & Management
  • Finance & Business Acumen

The scope and variety of programs that we offer allow you to create a custom curriculum that fits your ever evolving business needs. To receive your Certificate of Business Excellence, you must complete one program in each of the four pillars for a total of 17 days program excellence over a course of 3 years.
