"I had the benefit and privilege to be part of the inaugural Leadership Certificate program offered by the Business School at Illinois State University. This program was by far, the best professional education program I have attended in my career and after our five sessions, I found myself wishing for the course to continue. Professor Ringer created a masterpiece by blending passion with professionalism turning this program into a “go to” development opportunity for any corporate leader. The expectations for course completion included academic readings, participation in classroom discussion and small group work to apply the principles presented. But, it didn’t stop there, due to the academic and professional rigger of the course, we continued to discuss the leadership topics of the session at lunch and during breaks where Profession Ringer engaging in additional learnings.
The material was challenging, professional and useful; I have already applied much of the material in my work at Amdocs. Professor Ringer went out of his way to make this course a fulfilling experience. Every question, concern and thought was answered and I felt like a contributing partner in the course. I am an ISU alum and I am proud to say that this development opportunity was in the same caliber as my graduate degree. I was challenged and expected to participate and that is all I can ask of Professor Ringer and the Business School. I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to expand their leadership skills."
