Being successful in this dynamic and rewarding field requires strong leadership, managerial, and interpersonal skills, as well as in-depth knowledge of fundraising, marketing, program development, and governance issues.
Integrating theoretical approaches with practical applications, a degree in Nonprofit Management prepares you for a leadership position in a not-for-profit university, hospital, charity, foundation, or religious organization. Upon completion of this nonprofit degree, you emerge well equipped to embark on a career in nonprofit management—prepared [and inspired] to make a meaningful impact.
