Not-For-Profit Management Certificate Program
Professor Darlene Rodriguez, Director
The Certificate in Not-for-Profit Management is designed for the student wishing to enter or advance in a career in not-for-profit management. It is open both to those who have an undergraduate degree and to those who choose not to seek one. Salem’s Certificate in Not-for-Profit Management is rigorous, consisting of the core management courses required for Salem’s B.A. in Not-for-Profit Management. Salem’s not-for-profit management courses emphasize practical application of concepts learned. As a result, participants develop valuable contacts with the region’s not-for-profit community.
