Certificate in General Management
Management includes all leadership, coordination, and administrative tasks on the top, middle or lower management level. These responsibilities mainly relate to the management of parts of a company or the company as a whole. Managers take over management tasks such as planning, organization, leadership and controlling in companies or other organizations. They also develop, coordinate and market products and services. They decide on application of scarce resources which will be needed to achieve the corporate goals.

The New Elite
"Online Education can […] be extremely egalitarian, but it is egalitarian in a funny way. It can catapult the smart, motivated, but nonelite individuals over the members of the elite communities. [… A] good education no longer relies on living near a major city."
Professor Tyler Cowen: Average is Over. Powering America Beyond the Age of the Great Stagnation, 2013, p. 190.
