The Wisconsin Certified Public Manager (CPM®) Program is a nationally accredited management development program that prepares managers in federal, state, and local government and in tribal and nonprofit organizations for the challenges and unique demands of the public management profession.

We regret to announce that, due to COVID‑19-related financial impacts, the UW–Madison Division of Continuing Studies will discontinue the Wisconsin Certified Public Manager (CPM®) Program as of January 31, 2021. Graduates provide leadership in local, regional, and state public agencies and nonprofit organizations and have positively impacted their workplace and communities through their individual applied projects and group community service projects.
