About Xavier Leadership Center

For over 50 years, Xavier Leadership Center has delivered high-quality leadership, business acumen, and process improvement development programs for organizations and individuals.  

What does XLC do?

Welcome to the Xavier Leadership Center! XLC is a department of Xavier University’s Williams College of Business that focuses on executive education and professional development for all professionals, no matter the industry.  XLC  delivers high quality leadership and business professional development programs for global, regional, and local organizations and individuals.

What makes XLC different?

We have assembled a group of brilliant and successful people from within Xavier University and from the outside world—executives, teachers, thinkers, researchers, and practitioners—to deliver the best private, public, and advisory services the marketplace has to offer.

We offer both organizations and individuals world-class programs, which help professionals develop the skills they need to succeed, as well as invaluable advisory and coaching services to organizations looking to take their business to the next level. With our professional team of facilitators, many who have served as executives or advised in Fortune 500 companies and other leading organizations, we help accelerate the growth and trajectory of your own professional development or that of your organization.



All Xavier Leadership Center programs are eligible for continuing education units (CEUs). Additionally, through our partnership with the Ohio Society of CPAs, all XLC programs are eligible for continuing professional education (CPEs) for Certified Public Accountants to maintain their professional competence and credential. That means whether you’re taking a leadership program, a certificate program, or simply enhancing your personal effectiveness, you earn required CPEs toward your CPA accreditation!

Several of our programs are in alignment with industry-specific standards, such as our Project Management Certificate program with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).

Digital Badging

Completing any professional development is an accomplishment worth celebrating! For all of our programs, whether they are private for your organization or at Corporate University, we offer digital badges that can be shared on social media or added to resumes and portfolios. For certificate programs, digital and hard copy certificates of completion will also be shared to further signify your hard work and achievement.
