This graduate certificate is a 24 credit hours program in health management at the graduate level. The program is flexible enough to be adapted to the needs of pre-career and in-service individuals. Career employees of public sector agencies seeking courses in public management, especially those changing from professional or technical roles to managerial roles, will find the certificate program beneficial. It is significant to note that admission into the Certificate Program is separate from admission into the MPM Degree Program. Subsequently, students must pay a separate application fee for potential admission into the MPM Degree program if they select to pursue this degree option following the completion of the Certificate. In addition, students cannot apply for this Certificate program once they have completed the requirements for the MPM degree with a concentration in health care management.
