Nonprofit Management Certificate

Offered in collaboration with the Division of Professional and Continuing Education, the eight-course Nonprofit Management Certificate is designed to develop skills needed to successfully lead in a nonprofit organization. USD faculty and experienced practitioners in the nonprofit sector help students to build knowledge and skills in financial management, fundraising and grant writing, board development, staff and volunteer management, program evaluation and risk management. Courses are delivered in the classroom or in an online fixed-date format. Courses meet four times for just over three hours from 6:00 pm to 9:10 pm. Each class may be completed in one month. Participants may start in any semester and are welcome to sequence the courses to achieve their personal learning objectives. For enrollment information, contact the Division of Professional and Continuing Education. Students who complete this certificate program will also have the option to apply for the Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential from the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA).
