The difference between the Diploma and Certificate in Not-for-Profit Management is:
Admission to the Diploma requires successful completion of an undergraduate degree from an accredited university and is geared toward new graduates with little or no work experience in the Not-for-Profit sector. The Diploma includes a practicum where students gain work experience in the field.
Admission to the Certificate requires two years of work experience in the Not-for-Profit sector (or an approved alternative to be determined at the time of application) and is geared toward indivduals who are looking to make a career change or upgrade their current skills with formal education. The Certificate does not include a practicum placement. If you are looking for work experience in the field, you will need to apply and meet the admission criteria of the Diploma.
