Program Overview

The goal of Texas Southern University Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program is to prepare a cadre of professionals for executive leadership and management positions in the nonprofit community. Nonprofit organizations provide vital services around the world, in partnership with local, state, and federal governments, the private business sector, and philanthropic community. 

This is accomplished by completing a course load of four graduate level classes taught by public administration faculty with nonprofit expertise. The fundamental principals of organizational theory, public finances, advocacy, human resources & volunteer management taught in traditional public administration programs are customized and applied to real-life decision-making in the nonprofit world. 

The courses are taught in the online community, making it accessible all year, 24/7. 

After completing the Certificate Program students will have increased their marketable skills and knowledge base of nonprofit operations, expanded their network, and be prepared to play a leadership role in managing nonprofit service organizations. This certificate program is uniquely designed to meet the growing demand for mid-level career professionals in public, private, and nonprofit sectors who are looking for affordable ways to pursue executive-level training and skill development.

    School Overview

    Texas Southern University was established in 1927 and operates today as a public, 4-year institution of higher learning located in the city of Houston, Texas. In 1927, Houston’s school board approved the funding of an African American junior college called the Colored Junior College. The success of the school was immediate and by 1931 the school received approval by the Southern Association of Colleges. Once the school incorporated four-year programs, it was renamed Houston College for Negroes. Throughout the mid-twentieth century, the school continued moving forward, adding graduate programs and a law school, changing names once more. Then, in 1951, students petitioned to have the school renamed and the title Texas Southern University came into existence.

    Located just minutes from downtown Houston, the public Texas Southern University currently awards bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as doctoral programs. TSU houses ten colleges and schools along with several scholastic and research programs. TSU also supports online degrees and certificates.
