The MMA-Suffolk Certificate in Local Government Leadership and Management programs remain on track to be held in Danvers and Shrewsbury during the 2020-2021 academic year.

The application can be found at mma.org/certificate, and the application deadline has been extended to 5 p.m. on May 31.

The graduate-level academic program provides a well-rounded understanding of public-sector management. Class topics include administrative strategies in local government, budgeting and financial management, and human resources management.

Classes are taught by Suffolk University faculty and held on Fridays from September through May.

By June of this year, approximately 350 local officials will have graduated from the certificate program, which is a partnership between the MMA and Suffolk University’s Moakley Center for Public Management.

The Danvers and Shrewsbury sessions will be the 15th and 16th since the program started in 2011.
