Conflict Management and Resolution Certificate

Conflict Management and Resolution Certificate

Disputes are bound to happen in professional settings and in our personal lives. Negotiation, conflict resolution and collaboration skills are highly valued – and greatly needed – in today’s workplace. In fact, conflict resolution-related positions are expected to grow faster than the average occupation, according to the Department of Labor. It’s a market that demands skilled professionals to be qualified with a conflict management certification.

In ACU’s online graduate certificate in conflict resolution, you will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to help you manage conflict effectively and professionally in the classroom and boardroom while fostering relationships and successfully moving parties to agreement.  Coursework toward the graduate resolution certificate will, in most cases, be applicable to the Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation should you decide to pursue a graduate degree.
