Whether you are part of a private, public, or a nonprofit entity, you need to know how to meet the needs and challenges of your workforce and adapt to change.
The Center for Professional Studies is able to design customized programs to address your organization's specific challenges and growth opportunities. Drawing on the Drake faculty's expertise, we will collaborate with you to design and deliver a coordinated and academically sound curriculum which will lead to tangible results.
A typical program is designed around a group-learning format and takes up to 30 professionals through a one-year curriculum. Groups usually meet two days per month onsite or on the Drake campus. Some clients choose to pursue a program in a concentrated five to ten consecutive day format. This is a flexible format and can be adjusted to best meet your needs. In some cases a certificate program can be designed to provide a jumpstart into a College of Business and Public Administration graduate program.
Some examples of our customized certificates include:
