Certificate of Business Excellence (old)

The complexities of today's global business environment require 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.
