The Certificate in Public Management program focuses on the capabilities required for effective and ethical leadership in the public and nonprofit sectors. This includes the knowledge and skills pertaining to the internal operation of public-service organizations and to the relationship between those organizations and their environments.
Online courses offer a flexible and interactive format over a traditional fifteen-week semester during fall and spring (ten-week semester during summer), typically requiring online discussion several times a week. All online courses fall under 700 section numbers. On-campus courses in College Station are offered during a traditional fifteen-week semester, typically meeting once a week for three hours. Note: On-campus courses often fill up quickly since priority goes to Bush School degree-seeking master’s students.
To receive a graduate Certificate in Public Management, the student must complete 12 credit hours of PBMG courses with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Two core curriculum courses are required: PSAA 623: Budgeting in Public Service and PSAA 634: Public Management.
Please note that each course is not offered every semester. Please check with advisors for the most up-to-date list of courses.
