SFU Continuing Studies
Simon Fraser University Continuing Studies has been delivering flexible educational opportunities to adult students for over 45 years. Our diverse courses and programs for personal and professional development range in topic from writing and communications to business management and workplace wellness.
This fall, we are proudly launching our new Executive Leadership Certificate program at our downtown Vancouver campus. This part-time program will help you develop and apply a personal leadership framework that will position you for success in an era of complexity and rapid change.
We recognize that traditional, top-down approaches to leadership aren’t enough to address the vast array of challenges today’s leaders face. In order to remain competitive and drive meaningful change, businesses and organizations require new perspectives and strategies.
Through our program’s highly experiential approach, you’ll cultivate new ways of thinking, being and acting. In particular, you’ll focus on developing six essential complexity mindsets that will help you meet critical demands for flexibility, adaptability, ingenuity and innovation.
Created for current and emerging leaders in private, public and non-profit sectors, our program takes a highly experiential approach. You'll be able to apply your learning to your most urgent organizational issues and hone your professional practice. You will also have the opportunity to build community with fellow leaders and a network of expert coaches and mentors.
SFU’s Executive Leadership program begins in September and consists of short, intensive modules designed to suit your busy work schedule.
