Post-baccalaureate Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management

In the Post-baccalaureate Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management program, students gain knowledge and skills in nonprofit governance, management, fundraising, program development and evaluation that they will need to become leaders and change agents in this rapidly growing sector. We welcome degree applicants from any undergraduate major, as entry- and top-level employees in nonprofit organizations have a wide range of backgrounds including the sciences and humanities, social sciences and technology. Courses are scheduled in the evening and on weekends with the working professional in mind.
