Go beyond managing projects and become a leader in the profession. This mastery program allows you to develop skills that are essential to leading complex teams and projects. In addition to learning about agile project management, this five-course program will help you develop skills in business analytics, leadership and change management. Also, you’ll learn about process improvement, while at the same time earning a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt.

Who Will Benefit

Early and mid-career managers who want to move into or advance as a leader in an organization by spearheading key projects.

How it Works

How do I register in a mastery program?
You can register for a mastery certificate program from the mastery certificate home page on this website. Once you register, you will have access to the mastery certificate program participants page, where you can register for each course in the program individually and on your own schedule.

What is the cost of a mastery program?
The mastery program allows learners to build depth of knowledge and take multiple courses at a cost savings. When you register in a mastery program and pay an application fee of $350, you then will be able to register for the courses in the program at a special reduced price. The combined savings from the courses in the program will add up to more than the $350 mastery application fee.

Program Duration
You will have up to 18 months to complete all the courses in the mastery certificate program. The courses vary in length and modality. Some are virtual, instructor-led courses with set session schedules. Others are fully online, self-paced with approximately four months of online access. Please see each course description in the Topics section to learn more about each course. Because participants can take multiple courses at the same time if they wish, it is possible to complete the program within a few months. If an emergency or extenuating circumstances prevent you from completing all the courses within 18 months, you may contact the program coordinator or FIU Executive Education at fiuexeced@fiu.edu to request re-enrollment. A re-enrollment fee will apply.

Note: An individual certificate for each of the five courses is earned upon successful completion of each course. For more information about each course, see the Topics section.
