Business & Leadership Essential Certificate Program

December 31, 2021


In partnership with the York University TD Community Engagement Centre, and the Schulich Executive Education Centre, we have launched the Business & Leadership Essential Certificate Program.

This is a FREE 2-month virtual program designed for early-in-career Black professionals, employees, career changers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs looking to quickly develop their business skills from top professors. No prior university or college credentials are required.

About the Program

Business Essentials

Each participant will complete four learning modules in Business Essentials. Modules are pre-recorded so the participants can learn at their own pace.

Leadership Training.

Each participant will complete a LeaderGENE Profile to identify their leadership strengths followed by two half-day leadership training sessions to help understand how the results of the assessment can be applied.


Each participant will receive 10 hours of group mentorship and career coaching advice during the program. The mentor will focus on helping the participants understand how they can apply their learnings to business start-up and career goals.

The application is due on December 31, please email at yspace@yorku.ca if you have any questions.
