Public Management - IUPUI
The IUPUI Graduate Certificate in Public Management is designed to be flexible enough to be adapted to the needs of pre-career and in-service individuals. Graduate students in other disciplines can use the program to supplement their primary fields with coursework in public management, possibly using the certificate courses as part or all of a graduate degree minor. Career employees of public and private-sector agencies seeking courses in public management, and especially those changing from professional or technical roles to managerial roles, also find this certificate program beneficial.
As a student in the program, you take core courses in public management, public finance and budgeting, and public human resource management, as well as two additional O'Neill elective courses.
Your IUPUI Graduate Certificate in Public Management prepares you for such careers as:
- Community service manager
- Public relations specialist
- Civil service administrator
- Local government officer
- City manager
- Urban planner
- Public housing specialist
- Project manager
To earn the Graduate Certificate in Public Management, you must complete 15 credit hours.

NOTE: You must apply to the graduate certificate program as a degree-seeking student. Applications from non-degree students are not accepted.
