The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center at UW-La Crosse (UW-L SBDC) will offer its Supervisory Management Certificate Program with sessions from January to May.

The Supervisory Management Certificate Program is designed for managers with supervisory responsibilities. The concepts and skills taught are also relevant to those who work in a team environment. Whether you own your own business or work in an office, agency, health care facility or manufacturing plant, you will find this program applicable to your environment.

The program is composed of three required courses, as well as several elective courses.
