About this Professional Certificate
Applied Learning Project
Learners will create a portfolio of assets highlighting their skills as ethical leaders. The assets consist of written documents and video communications required of ethical leaders, including Op-Ed articles, risk management reports, strategy memos, media releases, and video press briefings.
Learners who complete the Honors projects will also author an industry feature article; a recommendation memo for the most appropriate ethical framework to guide an organization or a project; an Algorithmic Impact Assessment; a change management presentation to a Board of Directors; and a strategic business document such as a cost-benefit analysis, design plan, or business continuity plan.
This portfolio of assets can be shared on a learner’s social profile, shared in job interviews, or used immediately within their organization to promote ethical principles.
