Graduate Certificate in Public Management & Civic Leadership
The Certificate in Public Management & Leadership Studies prepares students for the evolving nature of civic leadership through coursework and practice that emphasizes relationship building, change management, global dynamics, intercultural understanding, and collaboration.
The goal of this certificate program is to foster civic leadership and engagement in the FIU student body by encouraging a consideration of leadership from multiple perspectives and contexts. Through involvement with the campus and greater community, students will become engaged in their own professional leadership education and development.
The Certificate Program requires completion of 15 credit hours of coursework (“B” or better required) and must complete an advising meeting prior to enrollment to outline their professional development, training, and community engagement goals.
Students will meet with a Certificate Advisor at least once a semester to report their progress and prepare a portfolio artifact (e.g. policy memo, website, infographic) to be submitted in their final semester.
Students will be expected to attend at least six (6) approved FIU Student Conferences, educational training and/ or seminars and document completion of one community engagement project prior to completion.
