Certificate in Nonprofit Management
The Certificate in Nonprofit Management recognizes the substantial role nonprofits play in the formulation and delivery of public services, and as vehicles for citizen influence and expression. The coursework focuses on building the specific analytical and management skills needed by those assuming leadership roles as executive staff or board members in a variety of nonprofit fields. All the courses feature a global perspective for relevance in today’s world of interconnected economies and communication. For students already working in nonprofit subspecialties, such as arts and culture, health, environmental conservation, or international development, the courses will show how their fields fit into the larger nonprofit sector and how the larger forces affect their own leadership and management challenges. The courses are also relevant for students pursuing careers in government agencies that require extensive interaction with nonprofits in the U.S. or other countries. For students in other countries, the courses offer a greater understanding of the role and potential of nongovernmental organizations, and convey the best practices emerging from the American experience and from other countries with an advanced or growing nongovernmental sector. Students are able to take courses at a full- or part-time pace. The curriculum is designed for working professionals in the government and nonprofit sectors who are looking to expand their expertise in nonprofit management with the latest skills and approaches taught by faculty members at the forefront of their field.
