The United States nonprofit sector represents the fifth largest economy in the world and is the nexus where our society’s social, political, economic, and moral concerns are identified, battled, worked out, and addressed.
The Master’s in Nonprofit Leadership is an interdisciplinary program intended for both those already working in the nonprofit sector as either a paid employee or a volunteer, as well as those who wish to move into the nonprofit sector. Preparing leaders for the nonprofit world of the 21st century requires competency in many different disciplines. Thus, the program draws from the disciplines of planning, evaluation, fund raising, ethics, law, human resources, finance, marketing, and more for students to develop the understanding needed to be a successful nonprofit leader and run a successful nonprofit organization. Graduates of this program, however, will not only have gained the interdisciplinary framework and knowledge needed to lead, they will also have had an opportunity to apply that knowledge and learn the challenges of aligning theory and practice.
