Course description

Accelerated Management Program

Earn an official certificate of professional achievement from Yale University.

In today’s evolving business landscape, there’s a need for leaders with the core management skills and knowledge to analyze and make complex business decisions across all facets of an organization. The Accelerated Management Program, from the Yale School of Management Executive Education, provides you with core skills and tools for managing a business more effectively. Through a unique integrated curriculum from a world-renowned business school, you’ll learn to overcome challenges across organizational functions, by understanding the connected elements of modern business.

Over the course of eight weeks online, you’ll engage with a raw case study (from Yale SOM’s unique directory of case studies) as you explore fundamental business management topics, such as decision-making using quantitative models, developing a competitive strategy, and leveraging social networks. You’ll also learn about the time value of money, and develop the ability to interpret financial statements and value a project or company.
