Catalog Description

This certificate will prepare students for employment in the Facilities Management profession. This profession ensures that facilities are operationally sound and maintain the needed resources and financing to ensure productive functioning. The primary management functions of planning, organizing, directing, and organizational change will be identified and analyzed throughout the program. The core competencies for this profession include communication, project management, budgeting skills, supervisory skills, analytical and technical skills, and the ability to identify and solve business problems. 

Enrollment Completer Projections

Since this certificate encompasses the disciplines of Accounting, Business Administration, and Management students in these disciplines are more likely to pursue the Facilities Management Certificate. In 2019 the Certificate and  Associates Degrees in Business Administration and Management, and the Certificate in Accounting totaled 238 completions. Looking at the completions just for Management awards they averaged 6 completions, therefore the trend for this certificate could parallel the Management completions.
