Advanced Certificate in Nonprofit Management

The 15-credit Advanced Certificate in Nonprofit Management provides graduate students with an understanding of the issues unique to nonprofit organizations and the skills to supervise and manage in nonprofit settings. The certificate requires successful completion of five courses. Candidates who already have a Master of Public Administration degree may apply up to three courses (9 credits) toward the certificate. Candidates for the Advanced Certificate in Nonprofit Management must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, and an acceptable record in undergraduate and other studies as reflected by official transcripts. Each candidate must also meet admission criteria established for the M.P.A. degree program.

The M.P.A. program at LIU Post prepares students for service in executive and managerial-level positions public, nonprofit, and health care organizations. Our graduates are currently serving in the hospitals and health care practices; local and national nonprofits; and local, state, and federal government positions. Additional detail on the sectors, organizations, and titles of our M.P.A. program graduates is available.
