Online Degree Program

The Master of Arts in Non-Profit Management is a highly multidisciplinary program, designed to prepare recent college graduates as well as mid- and senior-level administrators for the management and leadership of non-profit organizations of all types.

The program will employ two key pedagogical elements. First, the MA in Non-Profit Management will be highly experiential. Every course will offer students the opportunity to learn through experience and practice. The second key pedagogical element will be a strong focus on team building. This program was designed by the leadership of the city’s most prominent nonprofit organizations and by faculty from multiple departments: Social Sciences; English; Arts and Humanities; Management, Marketing and Business Administration; and Finance, Accounting and Computer Information Systems.

The courses for this degree are taught predominantly on-line .Although depending on student demand face to face courses may be offered, the degree can be completed fully on-line to accommodate the schedules of students who are working full-time.
