UMSL's Public Policy Administration program offers a Chancellor's Certificate in Public Administration to County Treasurers who have successfully completed courses in state and national treasury policy and management. The criteria for certification was developed in collaboration with The National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers (NACCTFO) and includes courses in organizational and personnel management, public relations, fiscal management, budgeting, management information systems, economics, and federal legislative process.
To earn certification, participants must be serving as a county treasurer, tax collector, trustee, or finance official. By completing educational credits, treasurers advance through four levels of certification: Government Finance Officer, Finance Executive, Finance Professional, and, finally, the Chancellor's Finance Master.
