Professional Certificate in Nonprofit Management

In conjunction with the Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management

Nonprofit organizations are constantly evolving to meet the changing demands of the populations they serve as well as their stakeholders’ needs. While often utilizing the same tools and practices of the private sector, nonprofits emphasize mission-driven work. The Professional Certificate in Nonprofit Management focuses on 14 key areas that successful nonprofit organizations depend on. Our specific curriculum sharpens your skills and helps you improve the productivity, efficiency and processes within your organization. With topics spanning revenue development, legal concepts, ethics and more, our courses offer something valuable for every nonprofit professional. These skills are essential for community leaders, program administrators, executive directors, board members and volunteers in nonprofit organizations.

Single courses may be taken without the pursuit of the certificate.
