Program Overview

National Graduate School of Quality Management offers a Post-Doctoral Certificate Program which is well suited for graduates of a doctoral program who are preparing and writing a manuscript. Students in this program will gain an increased body of knowledge which will assist them during the publishing process. Individuals will also receive valuable assistance and guidance from program faculty during the research and writing process. However, participants are ultimately responsible for having their manuscripts accepted and published.

The Post-Doctoral Certificate Program consists of 27 total credit hours that may be completed in 12 months. Students who are enrolled in this program must complete 3 separate certificates that are 9 credit hours each in 4-month intervals. The certificates include a Concept Certificate, a Research Certificate, and a Writing Certificate. These separate certificates are closely related to each other and when combined, they fulfill the 27 total credit hour program requirement. Students will meet with faculty at the start of each certificate. These meetings assist and guide students throughout each stage of the program. A final meeting at the end of the Writing Certificate will also be required in order to complete the program.

Parts of this program may be completed online; however, Resident Meetings do require students to meet on campus. This part-online learning environment provides flexibility for enrolled professionals who are employed or have other obligations. Students must be highly disciplined to complete a large amount of work which contributes to their manuscript. Time management and word processing skills are very important for students who enroll in this certificate program. Applicants must hold a doctoral level degree in order to be considered for admission into this program.
