The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship offers four certificate programs to help corporate citizenship professionals at all stages of their careers—earning a certificate gives practitioners access to a host of valuable tools while also adding notable credentials to their resume. Corporate citizenship professionals can earn these certificates, or take individual courses, in a variety of formats—from in-person events throughout the country to on-demand, online options. 

Now, we are excited to offer even greater flexibility to those seeking to earn their Certificate in Corporate Citizenship Practice through our Accelerated Certificate Summit, a week-long hybrid learning experience that dives deep into CSR best practices and connects core skills with elective courses most relevant to corporate citizenship practitioners’ work. The Summit is being offered from January 14 to January 18 in San Diego, CA—attendees can come from the whole week, one day, or anything in between—registering early means locking in the best rate.
