Graduate Certificate in Facilities Management

Basic Certificate Information

The graduate certificate in Facility Management is a 15 credit hour certificate program designed to educate and equip graduate-level facility management students with advanced knowledge and skills to enhance their performance, capabilities, and professional qualifications.

This certificate is 100% online and designed to develop fully-qualified facilities managers who are prepared to support and advance the facilities management profession. According to information provided by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), there is a critical need for professionally trained facility managers throughout the world. The current age of the average facility manager is 49, with 50% of the world’s facility managers expected to retire in the next five to fifteen years. With these seasoned managers stepping down, employers will have an increased need for well-trained employees from varying fields to fill these positions. Students who complete the Facility Management graduate certificate will be prepared to make an immediate positive impact in the facilities management field.
