Certification in Nonprofit Management

The Florida International University Metropolitan Center is now offering a Certification in Nonprofit Management. This seven (7) session model is designed to develop the knowledge, insights and abilities to enter or advance your career in the nonprofit field. Learn how to lead and manage people, develop strategies, build effective programs, connect with supporters and maintain a healthy and efficient nonprofit organization.

Access to ongoing training for nonprofit leaders is essential for their success. Nonprofit leaders, especially executive directors have to serve many roles from finance, governance, and human resources to marketing and public relations, fundraising, program development and more. There are very few who come to these nonprofit leadership positions with all the knowledge and experience necessary to handle each of these diverse roles with ease. Ongoing training is critical to keep up with best practices in the nonprofit sector and provide a platform for learning new skills and improving others.
