Certificate Program Offers Emphasis in Public Transit Management

Certificate program focuses on administrative and strategic aspects of public infrastructure management

The Stuart School of Business at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) announces a new customization to the Public Management certificate program, allowing participants to focus specifically on Public Transit Management. This emphasis area is designed to provide career development for Metra, PACE, and CTA employees in the Chicagoland area.

The certificate consists of four courses taken over four consecutive semesters, beginning Fall 2013, with participants advancing through the program as a cohort. Held one night each week at IIT’s Downtown Campus, classes will cover a range of topics, including the financial management process, HR planning and recruiting, and policy evaluation analytics. All courses will include case studies and real-world examples from public transit organizations.

The certificate is being offered through IIT Stuart’s Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree program, and completed courses can count towards the full MPA degree upon fulfillment of admission requirements. Participants may also be eligible for tuition reduction.

Applications will be accepted through July 1. For more information, please contact Roland Calia, Director of IIT Stuart’s Graduate Program in Public Administration, at
