Nonprofit Management - IUPUI

Graduate Certificate

There are more than 1.6 million nonprofit organizations in the US alone, and these organizations need well-prepared leaders and staff to continue making an impact on millions of lives across the globe. This graduate certificate prepares you for program management, across a broad range of fields including religion, education, social services, health, arts and culture, animals, the environment, developing countries, and many other worthwhile causes.

The IUPUI Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management is designed to serve the needs of individuals who would like exposure to nonprofit sector and nonprofit management issues but who do not wish or need to pursue a degree in nonprofit management.
