The 2022-2023 graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management at the University of Tampa will begin in May 2022 and last about 15 months.

Program participants will develop skills in strategic thinking, leadership, marketing, development and accounting. The required in-person sessions include:

    During this session, students will learn how to conduct market research, explore fund development and develop a marketing plan for their chosen project.


  • Accounting & Financial Management
    Students will learn the fundamentals of accounting, financial performance, analyzing costs and internal controls. They will also develop a budget for their program-long project.


  • Leadership and Innovation
    In the final session of the program, students will evaluate their personal leadership and develop an implementation plan.
