Facing the threat of privatization and for-profit competition, nonprofit organizations are challenged to find leaders who not only possess keen business and managerial skills, but can also effect change at a community or social level. 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.
The Master of Science in Nonprofit Management program—integrating theoretical approaches with practical applications—prepares you for a leadership position in a nonprofit university, hospital, charity, foundation, or religious organization. The program’s core curriculum has been carefully structured to provide a comprehensive perspective on the social, legal, cultural, and organizational issues that impact nonprofit organizations today. Six degree concentrations—Global Studies, Human Services, Leadership, Organizational Communication, Project Management, Social Media and Online Communities, and Sport and Social Change—complement the core curriculum, allowing students to connect their studies with personal and career learning objectives.
