Founded in 1998 in partnership with business leaders of the Cleveland Roundtable, the Diversity Management Program (DMP) is the first and only master’s degree in the country that combines cultural competence and leadership development.
Program participants develop and enhance leadership skills for guiding large and small companies, government agencies and nonprofits. Participants develop the presence and critical change leadership and cultural competence skills necessary to successfully lead organizations.
Through classroom instruction, hands-on learning experiences and practical real-world application, participants learn the essentials of harnessing group dynamics and conflict for innovation, and strategically managing competing interests.
The DMP combines the rigorous challenge of scholastic discipline with hands on real-world skill development. Bottom line, the program creates globally savvy leaders for today and tomorrow.
To help professionals acquire these skills, Cleveland State University offers a Master’s degree in Diversity Management (DMP) and a Graduate Certificate (18 credits) for professionals who already hold an advanced degree. Successful graduates also earn certification as Diversity Professionals (CDP). Working with experienced faculty and top professionals, participants gain the skills to manage change, solve problems and meet the challenges presented by diverse employees, clients and markets.
