Decision Making

Professional Development Course

How do you know you’re making the right decision? You don’t - especially when there’s pressure to make a decision - fast - and you’re not even sure the people who will execute the decision understand how to make your solution work.

But when you’re the person who brings well-thought out, fully-analyzed, results-driven, monetized and implementation-based decisions to your management, you become the answer to all their questions - and you set yourself up for the next stage in your career.

This online, interactive course is offered with a start date every other week, and takes five weeks to complete. Students receive hints and tips during the course period. Students must successfully complete the course to receive a certificate.

This course is offered by CSULB in partnership with, an online provider of self-managed, self-directed, immediately implementable, measurable, repeatable professional development resources.
