Management Fundamentals Certificate Series

Good managers help their department succeed by

  • Empowering and motivating their employees.
  • Juggling a wide range of tasks and deadlines effectively.
  • Knowing how to effectively manage people and their performance.
  • Helping others achieve their potential.
  • Ensuring that the business at hand is taken care of properly.

If you would like to become a more effective supervisor, MU Human Resource Services sponsors a Management Fundamentals Certificate Series. In this series, we present monthly courses that cover the information you need in order to improve your management skills.

This ten-course series is geared towards employees who are new to a supervising staff position or the University. However, the series also provides useful information to anyone with supervisory responsibilities. All courses are presented by HRS in partnership with the Missouri Training Institute and campus experts.

Course Schedule

This academic year, we are offering two separate cohorts of courses. A third cohort may be added if necessary.

Courses are held monthly (September – June) and take place from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Room 194 of the General Services Building.

A full schedule is listed below. Check out our course descriptions for more information on each individual course.
