What is GWU PACE?

GWU PACE is the Gardner-Webb University Professional and Continuing Education program. Gardner-Webb University is known for undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students for successful careers. Building on our nationally recognized academic strength, and under the leadership of President William Downs and our world-class faculty, the Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) program offers very specific, non-credit courses to enhance the skill levels of professionals ranging from entry level to mid-management, executive, and beyond.

These courses provide you with real world capabilities, based on current trends and research, that will advance your career and improve your effectiveness.

The GWU PACE Program offers certificate programs from different disciplines to help you improve your skills and impact society. It also offers fully customized training modules in partnership with corporations and other institutions that govern and issue discipline or specialized certificates. The GWU PACE is well positioned to offer SAP TS-410, PMP, AI/BLK, SFT, CPE credits and to mention but a few. Classes are held at the Gardner-Webb University Charlotte Center, corporate sites and through online.

All short (1, 2 or 3 days; some for few weeks) non-credit courses are taught by GWU faculty members and come with a certificate of completion. Several of our faculty members are developing courses to meet the demands of our society. Stay tuned for future courses. If you are interested in offering a short course with compensation, please contact Dr. Anthony Negbenebor at
