Master Certificate in Federal Financial Management

Graduate School USA offers a competency-based Master Certificate in Federal Financial Management (MCFFM). Courses in this program align with the competencies that practitioners at all levels of the federal government must demonstrate to excel professionally. They are developed and taught by practicing financial management professionals and are offered nationwide. All of the program courses that are appropriate for Department of Defense employees are aligned with the DoD financial management competencies.

See DoD Financial Management Certification Training.

 

 

Graduate School USA’s Master Certificate in Federal Financial Management is offered at four progressive levels. Courses required for the Level 1 Certificate develop the core competencies needed by the successful financial manager practitioner. The Level 2 Certificate courses broaden and expand the student’s expertise in the critical areas of planning, budgeting and decision support. The Level 3 Certificate courses enhance the analytical skills necessary to justify and use federal resources effectively. Level 4 Certificate courses develop the leadership and communications skills needed by successful team leaders and supervisors in a federal financial management environment.

As you progress through the MCFFM program, you become a more valuable member of your financial management team. In addition to developing solid financial management and leadership skills, participants are also better able to handle developmental assignments; demonstrate a personal commitment to self-improvement; and make the transition to higher-level positions.

  • Level 2: Four Years
  • Level 3: Seven Years
  • Level 4: Ten Years

Students wishing to apply for advanced standing must submit written documentation on their federal financial management experience to certificates@graduateschool.edu.

Depending on any advanced standing determinations, the two Levels could be: Levels 1 and 2; or Levels 2 and 3; or Levels 3 and 4.
