Corporate Education

No matter where the journey takes you... we're here.

VCU Center for Corporate Education programs are built on a joint foundation of technical and interpersonal skills, both essential to career success. Our programs equip individuals to navigate the ambiguity of leadership and encourage collaboration to drive both individual growth and organizational goals. Take ownership of your professional future.

Join us.

All courses will be delivered virtually to meet your needs through May 2021 due to social distancing guidelines. The Center believes that people learn best when they play an active role in their experience. To ensure active engagement, all virtual classes will be facilitated by an instructor in real-time – meaning you will be able to talk with them, ask questions, and collaborate as you would in the classroom. Using Zoom and other platforms, we are creating a learning space where participants can talk to each other through breakout rooms and interact with the material through our Learning Management System (LMS).

New to virtual learning? No problem! We are offering tutorials at the start of class to make sure you are comfortable and ready to learn and are always available by email.
