Tribal Management Certficate
Students completing this certificate program will be ready for entry management positions with
Anishinaabe (Indian) tribes and other tribal organizations or to transfer to a 2 or 4 year degree
granting institution to continue their education. Students will also be well-positioned to continue their
studies toward the KBOCC Anishinaabe Studies Associate Degree, since the certificate retains the
core components of the Associate Degree. Depending on placement (for the math requirement), fulltime students could feasibly complete the certificate program in one year.

Employ communication methods effectively to proficiently connect with varying audiences.
Synthesize the competencies needed to be an effective tribal leader.
Implement initiatives to decolonize tribal organizations.
