Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management
Nonprofits today simply require a higher level of management expertise. Nonprofit managers are required to manage people and programs more efficiently and effectively. The Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management focuses on developing skills in organizational management, financial management, fundraising, grant and report writing, human resources management, and governance.
The program integrates theoretical approaches with practical application to prepare students for positions in either small or large nonprofit organizations. The program targets individuals who work in the non-profit sector as executive directors, managers, program staff, board members, and volunteers. Students participate in case studies, individual and group projects, and class discussions.
