Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management
The graduate certificate in nonprofit management provides students with the managerial, fiduciary, and analytical tools necessary for leadership of nonprofit entities. The goal is to develop and hone skills that can be used to achieve organizational missions uniquely aimed at serving the interests of the community.
As one of the fastest growing sectors in today’s economy, nonprofit organizations have undergone a professionalization in management, with board members changing their orientation from one of personal networks to a bottom-line, information-based outlook. Successful nonprofit organizations today thrive on their ability to compete effectively in the marketplace, read community needs and priorities, and deliver appropriate services within budget.
Students must complete 12 credit hours to receive the certificate. Students do not need to be enrolled in a graduate degree program at MU to participate.
