Certificate in Nonprofit and Mission-Driven Management

Four graduate certificate programs are offered in public policy and administration. These programs provide students with a post-baccalaureate knowledge of an area of specialization with public policy and administration. Students in these programs register as certificate students. Certificate programs require a set of four courses. Students who are admitted to a master’s degree program may apply coursework previously taken in a certificate program toward the requirements for the master’s degree.

This certificate is designed for professionals who want to increase their knowledge and skills in nonprofit and mission-driven management but do not currently have the time to pursue a Master of Public Policy and Administration degree.
