Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership
Wheelock College and Boston University have reached an agreement to merge as of June 1, 2018 and we are no longer accepting new applications. As a prospective applicant to Wheelock College, we hope you will be interested in applying to Boston University.
Recent research indicates that within the next 5-10 years, more than half of current nonprofit leaders will retire and their organizations are not involved in succession planning or training of the next generation of leaders. In this program, students will gain skills, knowledge, and hands-on experience needed to advance in nonprofit management and leadership. Designed for nonprofit professionals, social workers, for-profit professionals, and others who want to transition into the nonprofit sector, this program provides students with the fundamentals of effective management and leadership in as little as one year. The courses in this program can also fulfill some of the requirements for Wheelock's full Master of Science in Nonprofit Leadership degree.
