Nonprofit Management - IU Bloomington

Graduate Certificate

If you are looking to increase your knowledge and skill level in the world of nonprofits but are unable to complete a full Master of Public Affairs, IU Bloomington's Certificate in Nonprofit Management is a great option for you. In only 15 credit hours, you will gain a better understanding of the nonprofit sector and nonprofit management issues.

This certificate can strengthen your performance in areas such as:

  • fundraising and development.
  • managing nonprofit social services.
  • parks and recreation.

As a student in the program, you complete three required graduate courses and two elective courses. The required courses cover human resource management in nonprofit organizations, management in the nonprofit sector, and financial management for nonprofit organizations.

You can complete the certificate in one year-but it is challenging. Like all programs offered through the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the curriculum is rigorous; but the effort you put forth will make your long-term professional goals reachable.
