Apply Now for the Spring 2023 Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program

Posted in News Story

The Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program is designed to strengthen the leadership and management capacity of nonprofit practitioners. Designed as an experiential leadership lab, this program provides a stimulating and supportive climate for exploring the pressing issues that nonprofit leaders face today and in the future.

As a cohort, participants take part in a sequence of online class sessions that explore the various aspects of nonprofit leadership and management and skills and tools needed for leading in uncertain times. Each individual participant undertakes a capstone management project that addresses a major organizational issue or need.

The program also gives participants the opportunity to become part of a network of nonprofit leaders committed to working across organizations, communities, and sectors to address public needs. Many of our 1,700 alumni have found these networking opportunities to be invaluable.

The Spring 2023 Certificate Program will be held online on February 9-11, March 9-11, and April 13-14. For more information on the program and topics covered, please visit our website here.
