Virginia Tech – Graduate Certificate in Local Government Management

June 18, 2020

The Graduate Certificate in Local Government Management provides the next generation of local government managers and leaders with the tools to advance their careers and to provide exceptional leadership within the communities where they work. The central goal of the program is to offer graduate-level training in local government management that both prepares pre-career students for capable public service at the local level and enhances the capacities of existing local government employees who aspire to be town, city, or county managers or assistant/deputy managers.

The Graduate Certificate in Local Government Management will be holding two information sessions via Zoom in July; Monday, July 13, 2020 at 11 am and Monday, July 20, 2020 at 11 am. The session will review the program, costs, instructors and benefits. Please note that all certificate courses will be offered by Zoom in the Fall and this delivery method provides a convenient method for employees to join the classes. In addition, we have financial assistance available for employees in Virginia local government.
