In a struggling economy, the Leadership Certificate is an excellent way to differentiate yourself from those around you. As a part of your transcript and résumé, employers will be able to see that you have had experience in being a leader and working with others.

According to Steve Schroeder, Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Programs in the Wisconsin School of Business, “One of the main qualities that companies are looking for in college graduates is leadership.

The Leadership Certificate through the Accenture Leadership Center is a great way to document your leadership experience in the Wisconsin School of Business and let employers know about your leadership accomplishments.
