You don’t need to enroll in a graduate program at the Mandel School to take advantage of its top-ranked education. Pursue a certificate designed for people who seek additional knowledge and training to achieve their goals.

The following certificates are for students NOT enrolled in one of our master’s programs. (MSSA students interested in certificate programs should visit the Social Work Master’s Degree: Cleveland page, and MNO students should visit the Nonprofit Management Degree page.)

The nonprofit management program at Case Western Reserve is one of the oldest in the nation, with a rich 30-year history and a new curriculum that continues its leadership on the cutting-edge of graduate nonprofit management education. Tap that expertise with a Certificate in Nonprofit Management (CNM), a credential requiring just 15 academic credit hours. The CNM may be done concurrently while pursuing an MSSA degree on campus or may be taken as a stand-alone credential.

CNM requirements are:
1. SASS 411 Nonprofit Dialogues (3 hours)
2. Four 3-hour courses from the curriculum listing for the Master of Nonprofit Organizations, selected in consultation with academic adviser

How To Apply
Click here for complete instructions and deadlines. Students already accepted or enrolled in the MSSA degree program should apply to CNM before the end of their first semester of MSSA study, using the supplemental application.
