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.

The Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management focuses on developing skills in organizational management, financial management, fundraising, grant and report writing, human resources management, and governance. The program integrates theoretical approaches with practical application to prepare students for positions in either small or large nonprofit organizations.
