Program Curriculum

  • The executive certificate in public and nonprofit leadership is a 6-credit graduate-level program intended for executives, managers and other professionals from the non-profit, public or civic sectors who wish to enhance their ability to lead volunteers. In a situation where participation cannot be demanded or extracted, the importance of inspiring commitment through the power of mutual influence (as opposed to the power of one’s position) becomes paramount. That is the essence of voluntary leadership.

    The certificate is awarded upon successful completion of OLCU 621 Frontiers of Public and Nonprofit Leadership and OLCU 626 Dynamics of Public and Nonprofit Leadership with a minimum grade of “C” and an overall grade point average of 3.0 or higher. No transfer credits may be used.  Students who wish to pursue further study in any graduate degree program in the School of Business and Professional Studies may use the above courses as electives, provided that they meet the graduate program admissions requirements for the degree they are seeking.

    Students seeking a certificate program only are not eligible for financial aid. Courses taken after completion of a degree program in order to complete the certificate are not eligible for financial aid.
