Join us for the Accelerated Certificate Summit


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.

The Accelerated Certificate Summit was born out of the goal to offer busy corporate citizenship professionals the opportunity to earn a Certificate in Corporate Citizenship Practice in half the time at half the cost. By limiting time away from the office and decreasing travel expenses, the Accelerated Certificate Summit gathers learners together for rigorous study that is bolstered by opportunities for participants to expand their networks and learn from other practitioners.

Learning will take place in two formats: an accelerated, in-person classroom experience and online coursework that learners can choose to complete before or after the Summit. There is also tremendous flexibility built into how the Summit is organized—learners can come for all five days, only one day, or some portion of the week—and can choose to take required courses in strategy, communications, and measurement; a number of elective courses; or some combination of both required courses and electives.

As is the case with all of the courses offered by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, all Accelerated Certificate Summit classes have been designed by and will be taught by Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship teaching fellows, business leaders, corporate citizenship peers, and top faculty from the Carroll School of Management at Boston College.

We encourage you to reserve your spot at our upcoming Accelerated Certificate Summit—come to learn, network with your peers, and earn your Certificate in half the time and at half the cost!
