Certified Public Manager (CPM) Program Begins in March in partnership with UW-Madison

UIC's Government Finance Research Center, in partnership with UW-Madison, Extension, will begin the Certified Public Manager® program on March 21, 2024, in Bristol, WI. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a CPM Certificate signed by the Governor and University Chancellor. The Cohort program will be hybrid, allowing participation both in-person and virtually, for maximum flexibility to earn the CPM designation.
