Nonprofit Management

School of Public Affairs - Denver

Format

Online

An online class is delivered 100% electronically using the internet or other computer-based methods. The teaching is conducted from a remote location through an online course learning management system or other online or electronic tools. Students have access to the teacher and classmates synchronously, asynchronously, or both. Online classes typically are term-based, but some may be offered in a self-paced format.

This online 15 credit certificate will prepare you to become an innovative and critical thinker in the areas of nonprofit organizational management and public policy. The program allows flexibility so students can develop specialized skills in areas such as private-public partnerships, volunteer and program management, development and grant administration. Students gain insight into the interdependence between the nonprofit, public, and for-profit sectors. The certificate can later be applied to the 36 credit hour MPA program.
