Howard Business School to Offer Certificate Program in Executive Coaching

WASHINGTON (March 5, 2013) –Howard University School of Business has teamed up with Cincinnati-based Sherpa Coaching to offer a certificate program in executive coaching.

The course is based on the text, The Sherpa Guide: Process-Driven Executive Coaching by authors Brenda Corbett and Judith Colemon. The authors have developed and delivered university-based certification programs since 2005.

Certification and training for executive coaches is becoming more important to those who work in the field. Among coaches participating in the Sherpa Executive Coaching Survey for 2013, over 70 percent listed certification as their primary development tool. Howard joins the University of Georgia, Texas Christian and six other universities in partnering with Sherpa.

“As a global leader in business education, the Howard University School of Business is excited to partner with Sherpa to offer the Executive Coaching Program,” said Kim R. Wells, director of Executive Education at the Howard University School of Business. “Executive coaching has increasingly become a fundamental necessity for competitive business professionals, and we at HUSB are excited to be part of a program that prepares and supports this growing business profession.”

The two-week program will take place on Howard’s campus. The first week of class begins April 22. The second week will begin on June 10.
