Leading-Edge Online Business Training
by Public Health Professionals for Public Health Professionals
With a curriculum based on real-world public health scenarios, the BEAM Certificate Program closes the financial and managerial skills gap that public health professionals have identified as their top training need.
BEAM was developed by nationally recognized public health thought leaders and practitioners at the University of Miami’s public health and business programs, the de Beaumont Foundation, and other leading organizations.

Strategic Problem Definition
BEAM is the response to studies showing a deficit in business competencies at a time when public health organizations strive to be high-performing, high-outcome organizations. This program is therefore a good investment for employers to make on behalf of their employees, and for individuals to make in their professional futures, by building critical knowledge through an accessible format, at a reasonable cost, with top-tier faculty that knows how to deliver.
