The Nonprofit Certificate program is designed for students who are currently working in the nonprofit sector or for those who desire an introductory perspective on the unique issues facing a nonprofit organization.

​This certificate program consists of 12 courses geared to provide the essential information of nonprofit business. Students will examine the fundamental principles of nonprofit, the roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit board of directors and the management team, the essential aspects of fundraising, and the fundamentals of the budgeting process.
