Advanced Institute for Economic Development

Offered at Fresno State

***********************************************************************************

The Advanced Institute for Economic Development (Advanced Institute) encompasses the advanced California-

specific coursework required for the Accredited California Economic Developer (ACE) program—a new

training/certification program for California economic developers.*

 

The Advanced Institute builds on the “Introduction to Economic Development Certificate Program” (also known as

“Keys to Successful Economic Development”) which is also offered at Fresno State and is a prerequisite to this

series of advanced courses leading to ACE certification.**

 

While reflecting universal best practices in economic development, all Advanced Institute courses emphasize

California-specific curriculum. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the best practices in economic

development, while developing a network of connections and resources throughout California.
