How can I obtain it?

This certificate is only available to students of Polimi Lecco Campus currently in the Master programs, the Specialistica or the last two years of the Quinquennale. In order to start the process for participation, you must complete the Initial Application you find in the “How can I apply?” section of this website. This application is not a binding document. It will simply provide us with information to contact you, if necessary, and to inform you of new opportunities. Applying for the actual certificate before you graduate will be your decision and responsibility.  

The following are the steps to obtain a Leadership Certificate:

  • Fill in the online form for the Initial Application to the Program (interested students should apply with, at least, a year before their projected graduation date in order to complete the requirements);
  • Stop by the Center for Leadership Development (E0.1) to pick up your information packet (Student Packet for Leadership Certificate). This packet will guide you through the process. It also contains samples of the forms you will need to submit to our Center;
  • Sign up and attend a minimum of three co-curricular workshops or courses offered by the Center for Leadership Development. Two of these offerings are obligatory (Theories of Leadership and Styles of Leadership), and the third can be of your choice. These opportunities will be announced to you via e-mail and on our website;
  • Submit proof (Field of Action Validation Form) of having participated in a minimum of 20 hours of service to your community or campus;
  • Write and submit the “Reflection Statement”;
  • Alert the Center for Leadership Development of your exact graduation date to process your certificate.

Certificates will be given out to you upon graduation.

* Please note that your participation in E-Mentoring as a Mentee is highly recommended, and considered an integral part of your leadership experience on this campus.
