The de Beaumont Foundation partners with the University of Miami to offer a certificate program that helps public health professionals develop business skills that are vital to their success.
Business skills, such as budgeting and financial reporting, are absent from many health departments’ curricula. To address this issue, the de Beaumont Foundation and the University of Miami have partnered to develop the Building Expertise in Administration & Management (BEAM) certificate program for public health professionals interested in advancing their careers by learning fundamental public health business skills. BEAM is a self-paced, interactive, 15- to 20-hour course built around six interconnected modules:
- Strategic Problem Definition
- Contract Monitoring
- Assessing Financial Performance
Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a BEAM Certificate signed by the deans of the University of Miami medical and business schools.
