Certificate in Higher Education Administration / Enrollment Management - Cert.

Colleges and universities are complex institutions that constantly need skilled administrators who understand all aspects of the ever-shifting higher education environment. Our 12-credit-minimum certificate program in enrollment management is designed for working professionals who already have master’s degrees and seek career-enhancing skills and credentials.

The program is based on an unusual collaboration between the School of Education, School of Business Administration, and the Division of Enrollment Management, which has been a nationally recognized leader in enrollment management for 17 years. Because the University of Miami is a working laboratory for EM, you are offered hands-on opportunities and exposure to the campus components engaged in EM thinking and practice. These include recruitment and admissions, financial aid and scholarships, market and institutional research, student employment and career planning, records and registration, academic advising, and support services and more.

A minimum of 12 credits must be earned for certification. Our enrollment management core courses constitute 6 of those credits and are required. Another 6 credits are selected with faculty guidance to help you meet individual goals. An additional course or courses may be required to attain certification in EM, depending on your experience and prior coursework.

For information about these exciting programs please visit the Enrollment Management website maintained by UM’s Division of Enrollment Management.
