The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Facilities Management will be conferred upon students who demonstrate work of high merit that entails scholarship and outstanding academic achievement through six online Facilities Management (FM) courses specifically designed for the industrial sector.
Professional FM serves as an interdisciplinary business function with the objective of coordinating demand and supply of facilities and services within public and private organizations. The term “Facility” (pl. facilities) means something that is built, installed or established to serve a purpose, which, in general, is every “Tangible asset that supports an organization.” Examples are real estate property, buildings, technical infrastructure, (HVAC), lighting, transportation, IT-services, furniture, Custodial, grounds, and other userspecific equipment and appliances. FM is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. It integrates the principles of business administration, architecture and the behavioral and engineering sciences.
*The LSU Board of Supervisors may modify tuition and/or fees at any time without advance notice.
This is an online program designed for career-change, post-baccalaureate students; therefore, please see the LSU Online section of this catalog for more information.
A post-baccalaureate certificate, as defined by the Board of Regents, is “an academic offering that is earned after a student has already completed a recognized baccalaureate degree.”
