Carnegie Mellon University’s CIO Institute delivers excellence in executive education for today’s leaders in business-technology.
The CIO Institute is specifically focused on helping IT leaders better align people, processes, and technology for organizational effectiveness through our flagship program, the Chief Information Officer Certificate. The CIO Institute can also develop customized programs to fit your organization’s specific training needs.
Our Federal CIO Certificate program includes eight courses that can be completed in as little as one year by attending weekday sessions at our Arlington, VA facility.
The CIO Certificate is issued by the U.S. General Services Administration's (GSA) CIO University. The CIO University promotes academic education and collaboration, via graduate-level programs, through a virtual consortium of six universities to address Chief Information Officer core competency requirements for organizations and individuals.
The program focuses on twelve subject areas directly related to competencies identified by the Federal CIO Council in compliance with the Clinger Cohen Act of 1996:
As a federal government sponsored program, Carnegie Mellon’s CIO Institute follows the GSA model of issuing Certificates of Program Completion in August. Students that require evidence of program completion before August should contact CMU’s CIO Institute for a CMU CIO issued certificate and/or an authorized letter of program completion.
