Academic Programs


Business skills training, such as budgeting and financial reporting, are absent from many health departments. To address this issue, the de Beaumont Foundation and the University of Miami have partnered to develop a certificate program for public health professionals who are interested in advancing their careers by learning business fundamentals.

The mission of the Building Expertise in Administrative Management (BEAM) certificate program is to provide public health professionals with the foundational business acumen needed to succeed in the workplace. The BEAM Certificate program emphasizes professional development, financial management and reporting, budgeting, contracts and management. BEAM is designed for professionals who have formal or informal public health leadership responsibilities.
