Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate

Certificate Class

Summer 2011 Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program Participants

Please note that the final deadline to apply to our Summer 2014 Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program is April 28, 2014.

About the Program

The Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program is designed to strengthen the leadership and management capacity of individuals working in or with nonprofit organizations. The program gives participants the skills necessary to respond to the complex challenges and opportunities facing their organizations and communities. Designed as an experiential leadership lab, this program provides a stimulating and supportive climate for exploring the pressing issues facing current and future nonprofit leaders.

Each participant takes part in a sequence of class sessions that explore the various aspects of nonprofit management and undertakes a capstone management project that addresses a major organizational issue or need. The program also gives participants the opportunity to create a network of local, national and international nonprofit leaders committed to working across organizations, communities, and sectors to address public needs. Many of our former students have found these networking opportunities to be invaluable.
