Leadership for Women in Business (ACE CREDIT®)


This online course explores the various challenges that evidence suggests women in business are likely to face—challenges that are different (in kind or in scale) than those faced by men in business. Throughout seven segments, learners will explore key concepts and practices that all successful business people should be familiar with, such as leadership, management, communication, work-life balance, networking, negotiation, and body language. The material also provides concrete and data-driven recommendations for women looking to advance their careers, by naming some of the systematic obstacles they might face, such as explicit discrimination, implicit bias, glass ceilings, and assumptions about familial responsibilities. Alongside commentary from women leaders, students will learn strategies for addressing these challenges. The self-paced course offers an assortment of interactive exercises, videos, case studies, and self-assessments that engage students and provide opportunities to practice essential business skills.

Topics covered in the course:

  • Body Language for Women in Business
  • Communication for Women in Business
  • Current Issues Facing Women in Business
  • Leadership and Management for Women in Business
  • Negotiation for Women in Business
  • Networking and Mentorship for Women in Business
  • Work-Life Balance for Women in Business
