The Sports Philanthropy Executive Certificate Program at the GW School of Business — the first and premiere program of its kind — provides a groundbreaking online curriculum tailored to the unique needs of those who work for professional sports teams, leagues, athletic foundations, sports-related companies with an emphasis on corporate social responsibility, nonprofits using sports for social good and for individuals looking to enter the field. The program is in partnership with the GW Sports Management MBA Program, ranked the number three postgraduate sports business program in the country by SportBusiness International Magazine.

Built around your busy schedule, the certificate includes 10 core online courses, guest calls with industry leaders and a capstone project that will bring together elements of what students learn during the program. The program also includes a two-day in-person residency at the beginning of each cohort. This residency will not only provide an opportunity for experiential learning but will allow time to meet fellow students and exchange ideas. The program is now recognized through the NFL and the NFL Trust allowing current and former players to enroll in the program. 

What's even more exciting is that the coursework and benefits of the program are being extended to you as an active member of PFPMA, Inc. and mother of an enrolled current player or former player.  For those who do not qualify, a tuition discount will be offered to you as a member of PFPMA, Inc.  The next cohort kicks off on Oct.1.  Don't miss this great opportunity.
