About Us

Case Western Reserve University is the premier academic institution in Northeast Ohio, and its division of Continuing Professional Studies (CPS) offers a full array of non-credit and certificate-based programs for working professionals through both open enrollment and customized industry-sponsored courses. We recognize that education for a successful career does not stop upon completion of a degree, but that retaining a competitive edge in one’s current career or transitioning to a new path demands a commitment to lifelong learning. CWRU utilizes the tools of continuing education to advance the broader issues of overall community engagement and regional economic development. Read more on our commitment to this initiative here.
