Doctor of Professional Coaching

Monarch University in collaboration with Noble Manhattan Coaching is launching the The Doctor of Professional Coaching.

The Doctor of Professional Coaching (DPC) is specifically formulated as an applied and practical study for the working coaching professional. The DPC program is addressing the critical dimensions of effective leadership and coaching at an advanced level. The unique program combines a pragmatic management and coaching approach with the academic rigor of a doctoral degree. Additionally, the program provides a platform that enables the participant to develop as effective leaders and coaches by examining their personal skills, beliefs and value-sets as they relate to those with whom they interact. Participants will develop insight and skills to mature into more effective coaches, leaders and managers through rigorous doctoral level research and application.
