There’s Still Time! Apply to Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program

There's still time to submit your application for the highly acclaimed Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program beginning in September 2015!

This year-long, graduate-level program is designed for mid-career human service employees who seek to strengthen their management skills and learn in specialized, sector-specific classes with peers from other human service agencies. The program is offered in partnership with Clark University in Worcester and Suffolk University in Boston.

Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis! Submit yours today or encourage future leaders and rising stars at your organization to submit their application!

The Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program is comprised of six mandatory blocks of classes, which begin September 2015 and end June 2016. Classes meet once a week, on Wednesdays at Clark and on Fridays at Suffolk.

The program includes classes on:
• Nonprofit Human Service Management
• Financial Management
• Program and Policy Evaluation
• Human Resources Management
• Legal & Ethical Issues for Nonprofits
• Social Entrepreneurship (Clark)
• Fundraising and Grant Writing (Clark)
• Alternative Revenue Strategies for Nonprofits (Suffolk)

The curriculum of the Certificate Program is designed to build skills and knowledge in key areas so that students can immediately apply what they learn in the classroom to their work in the field.

In addition, the year-long program offers students a unique opportunity to grow their network of peers and connect with other human services managers and leaders to support the sharing of ideas.

Students who successfully complete the Certificate Program at either school and who already have a bachelor's degree may be eligible to transfer credits towards a graduate degree. Students may earn the equivalent to almost one-third of the credits needed for a Master's Degree in Public Administration, giving them a jump start on the credits, time and cost associated with pursuing a master's degree.
