The Organizational Leadership Certificate of Graduate Study (COGS) courses offered by Rowan University’s Rohrer College of Business (RCB):

  • are a valuable stand-alone credential on your way to earning a master’s degree;
  • are ideal for those who have not yet taken the Graduate Admission Test (GMAT) as the GMAT is not required for admission to the COGS program; and
  • are fully transferrable into the MBA program at Rowan in the future to satisfy an Organizational Leadership area of concentration.

Stand Out in Your Field

Adding organizational leadership to a skill set can be the determining factor for success in a competitive job market for management level positions. An Organizational Leadership COGS will help students become effective managers adept at liaising between employees and executive-level management.

The responsibilities of organizational leaders range from developing new systems to bringing teams together to maximizing an organization’s culture, productivity, and profitability, while supporting diversity, individuality, work-life balance, and more, impacting coworkers’ daily lives and offering them the tools and inspiration they need to succeed.

Exceptional organizational leaders are needed in every industry and sector, regionally and globally: nonprofit, corporate, health care, government, education, and more.

Organizational leaders are in demand. Some of the roles organizational leaders thrive in include:

  • consultant or business analyst;
  • sales manager;
  • health care manager;
  • management analyst;
  • human resource specialist;
  • community service manager;
  • training and development manager;
  • chief executive officer (CEO);
  • nonprofit executive director; and
  • school principal.

Why Choose a COGS?

A COGS pathway makes it possible to immediately focus on a specialized area of interest strategically tailored for your next career move or the next step in your education. The admissions process for a COGS is more streamlined than for a full degree, allowing a simpler entry point to explore graduate studies.

Pursuing a Certificate of Graduate Study (COGS) can contribute to your earning a promotion or higher pay, expand your responsibilities in your current role, and make your resume stand out.

Gain expertise you can add to your repertoire and resume now. Elevate your strategic and critical-thinking dexterity, revitalize your skill set, improve your leadership and management potential, and give your work performance more agility and depth.
