ABSTRACT
This paper examines the relationship between Certified Public Manager (CPM) programs offered through state governments and university public administration programs. In particular, it analyzes how university credit is offered for completion of management development training received in CPM programs. The collaboration between state training agencies and universities has been shown to benefit both parties, and the respective curricula can be complementary rather than competitive. As these relationships become more common, a logical question is likely to arise about whether university credit should be offered for completion of CPM curriculum. Through looking at the various partnership relationships of CPM programs offered in 25 jurisdictions, this paper focuses on whether each CPM program offered university credit, and if so, what its rationale was for doing so, what its criteria for offering that credit was, and what the institutional relationship between the program and universities that accept its CPM program credit looked like. Results show that all programs reviewed are either currently offering credit or plan to in the future based on varied criteria and relationships with universities. Linking CPM programs to university credit could have an influence on the quality of curricula and instruction to make CPM programs a more integral part of graduate education.
