Georgetown University’s newest cohort of the Certificate in Education Finance (CEF) starts with a two-day residency at The Joyce Foundation in downtown Chicago on July 16th & 17th.
Taught by Dr. Marguerite Roza and a range of guest speakers, this first-of-its-kind program is an interdisciplinary, interactive, hands-on approach to learning and applying finance strategy, leadership, policy and administration, covering everything from resource allocation and productivity to financial tradeoffs and equity. We’re looking to equip participants at all levels of the education system with the practical skills needed to be both better consumers and users of education finance information. Cohort participants range from (but are not limited to) district and school leaders to analysts and graduate students to nonprofit leaders and policymakers. Our cohorts to date report that working with and learning from professionals across a wide swath of roles and perspectives in the education sector is invaluable in helping them effectively apply their newfound skills.
Designed for full-time working professionals, the 40-hour (4 CEU or 48 CPE) certificate builds on the two-day residency with live, interactive virtual sessions roughly every two weeks through October. Scholarships may be available. For questions, contact Liz Ryan at ELabCEF@georgetown.edu
