The Executive Certificate in Management Program by University of Virginia represents an outstanding opportunity for the Computer Science engineer like me. Having built quite a good technical expertise in the Mainframe Technology during 4 years, I followed the advice of a friend and enrolled in the Executive Certificate in Management program last August. As a mid-career mover at that time, I wanted to acquire the business and managerial skills I was desperately lacking. Today after having completed 8 papers left with 2, I certainly do not regret the choice I made last year. The courses I have been taught so far have proved very insightful and have raised my awareness about the necessity to understand the corporation internal processes as well as its environment. This program has been broadening my horizons in providing me with an overall picture of the corporate activities, complementary to the technical matters I dealt with in my prior experiences.
