CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Executive Development Center is now accepting registrations for the 2012 Management Excellence certificate program. The program, designed for experienced managers, consists of nine classes conducted from Jan. 25 to May 2.

The Management Excellence certificate program is comprehensive management training program intended for team leaders and managers who have a couple years of managerial work experience and want to further develop their management ability and boost their confidence in handling the more difficult and uncomfortable situations managers face like addressing performance issues, negotiating better deals and making difficult and unpopular decisions. 

The enrollment deadline is Jan.18; space is limited.

"In four months, participants will be better able to hold employees accountable, ask better questions, strengthen working relationships, diagnose business problems and improve their communication and leadership skills," said Kim Recker, program manager for the UNI Executive Development Center.

Introductory tuition for business employees is $2,998, which includes all training and instruction, materials, lunches, refreshments and parking. Businesses can enroll a second person from the same organization for a discounted price of $1,998. Tuition for non-profit employees is $1,998. UNI Alumni members receive a 10-percent discount.
