MPH Certificates

Graduate Certificates


The School of Public and Population Health offers two graduate certificates — one in Data-Driven Decision Making and another in Health Management and Leadership. These certificates are a great option for working health professionals who want to improve their management knowledge and leadership skills but who do not want to pursue a graduate degree.  The certificates are also a good fit for students who wish to complement their undergraduate degree with graduate coursework before moving into the workforce.

Disclosure:  The Graduate Certificate in Health Services Leadership is subject to the gainful employment disclosure requirements as prescribed by federal regulation 34 CFR 668.6(b) (2) (iv).
