Management and Leadership Certification for Non-profits at Argosy University, Twin Cities

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f12%2fTC+Management+Certificate+for+Non-Profits+NEW.png"

Two years ago, over lunch, Jill West, CEO of People Incorporated, and Dr. Karen Gulliver, Dept. Chair, Argosy University, Twin Cities Graduate School of Business and Management, were talking about what kept them both awake at night. Jill’s biggest fear was the same as for every non-profit, large or small. Departure, for any reason, of a senior leader could easily disrupt or derail an organization’s mission, or be the catalyst that vaporizes its vision. Non-profits tend to be mission-delivery focused to the point where they seldom think to groom or develop the next line of organizational leaders. Making matters more difficult was the fact that many managers were clinicians, loathed to take on administrative or senior leadership roles. Hands-on interaction with the core client base is why most people work in non-profits and what keeps their motors running.

What does it take to close that gap, because the subject of many subsequent conversations. Two years later, the two are offering a certificate in Non-profit Leadership and Management that is exceptional in scope and value. Covering the basics of management, participants also learn the fundamentals of leadership, take personal assessments on their strengths & potential, get confidential debriefs, coaching and start a personal leadership development plan. CEU credits are available for all participants.

Overcoming Obstacles: Argosy University’s Stephanie Mrosek Leads by Example

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f10%2fStephanie+Mrosek+pic.png"

Stephanie Mrosek knows what it feels like to struggle.

She also knows what it feels like to succeed.

Six years ago, Mrosek, then 22, left a bartending job in Puerto Rico to move to Florida. But things didn’t go quite as planned. Within a year, she found herself in an abusive relationship, unemployed—and pregnant.

“I knew that getting an education was my only hope for improving my life, but fear and procrastination really got in my way,” Mrosek remembers. “I was also in default on previous student loans and had very little money, so I didn’t see a way out. I kept telling myself that the time just wasn’t right. But I also knew that every day I waited to start making my life better was a day wasted. I finally decided I was willing to do whatever it took to make it happen.”

That’s exactly what she did. Mrosek moved to Pennsylvania to be closer to family and enrolled at Argosy University. With transfer credits, she completed her BA in Criminal Justice (with a concentration in management and security management) in just two years. She graduated from the online program in 2015.

“I wanted to become a probation officer so I could encourage kids to stay in school and make a better life for themselves, no matter where they come from,” says Mrosek. “I really believe we each possess the power to change our lives. No one has to become a statistic.”

As it turned out, Mrosek didn’t need to become a probation officer to encourage students to excel. While completing her degree, she became an admissions representative at Argosy.

“When I applied for the job, I didn’t even know the position was at Argosy,” she says. “After I interviewed and they told me I was hired, I remember thinking it was the perfect place for me. I could relate to the students and all the challenges they face, because I’ve been there.”

After three years in admissions, Mrosek became a financial counselor at Argosy, helping students pursue financial aid, identify scholarship opportunities, and establish financial plans that make it possible for them to earn their degrees.

When Mrosek completed her BA, she says she became “obsessed” with the idea of earning a graduate degree.

“As busy as I was with work and raising my daughter, school provided an extra challenge that really energized me,” she says. “It also gave me an added sense of power, control, and accomplishment. I wanted to see how far I could go.”

She decided to pursue an advanced degree, and in July, Mrosek earned her Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at Argosy. She hopes to use her degree in a management position at the university. In the meantime, she’ll continue counseling students—and sharing her story whenever she thinks it might help a student conquer his or her self-doubt.

“It’s easy to feel isolated and alone when we’re struggling,” says Mrosek. “I’ve learned that you can either break down or break out. Someone once told me that your life is like a vase. When it gets broken, you have a choice to either let it stay broken or glue the pieces back together and make it whole again.”

Mrosek says the past six years have taught her that life is all about growth and change.

“There was a time, not that long ago, when my future didn’t look so bright,” Mrosek says. “But in six years, I’ve earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. I have a job I love, helping people pursue their own dreams. I’m in a wonderful relationship with a supportive man and have a second child. I’m proof that where you start doesn’t have to be where you finish. You are not your past.” ###
