School of Business’ executive program nearly full for spring semester

Francis Marion University’s School of Business is once again providing career-minded managers and managers-to-be with an opportunity to earn another credential that can help them become a more effective leader in their organization.

The third cohort of the Certificate in Executive Management Class will launch in January and will provide an in-depth study of the skills and knowledge necessary to advance within the world of business. Organizers say only a few places remain for the class.

The program focuses on five key components within business leadership – communication, creating organizational culture, leadership, data analytics, and strategic thinking.

Dr. Hubert Setzler, associate professor of Management and the Nellie Cooke Sparrow Professor of Business at Francis Marion University School of Business, believes the course will offer ample opportunities for attendees to garner unique insights into how they can advance their careers.

“The Certificate in Executive Management is part of Francis Marion’s mission to help organizations who are looking to enhance their upcoming manager’s leadership and management skills,” Setzler says. “For people looking to enhance their careers, this will be a big help. In today’s workplace, it’s often not enough to simply be good at your job. It’s necessary to function as an effective leader, and this program will provide the means to do that.”

The course will be provided in five installments throughout the spring, meeting once a month beginning January at the Carter Center for Health Sciences at 200 W Evans St. in downtown Florence.

Upon completion of the course in May, attendees will receive a completion certificate and three hours of academic credit at Francis Marion University as a business elective. Tuition for the course is $800.

Enrollment for the Certificate in Executive Management class is currently underway and registration should be completed by Dec. 20. For more information on the course, visit or call the FMU School of Business at 843.661.1419.
