Nonprofit Management - Certificate

Students who complete the Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management will gain an understanding of the nonprofit sector, nonprofit organizational structures (i.e., legal frameworks and governance issues), and management practices appropriate to the nonprofit sector (i.e., strategy, volunteer behavior, and fundraising). With this preparation, students will be able to offer effective leadership in the management of nonprofit organizations. This program is approved for on-campus delivery. It is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology. Students may choose the format or mix of formats that best fit their needs.

External applicants must have an accredited bachelor's degree and meet other entry qualifications to be admitted to graduate study at Texas A&M University. Students who are currently enrolled in a graduate program at Texas A&M University may take individual courses, as may undergraduates at the Texas A&M University College Station campus who meet certain GPA and degree-status requirements; however, all students must formally enroll in the certificate program and meet certificate completion requirements to earn the certificate. An individual who successfully completes the certificate program will be awarded a certificate by Texas A&M University and the Bush School. Grades for courses taken as part of this program will appear on the official transcript, together with the notation that the certificate has been achieved.
