Master of Nonprofit Management Celebrates 10 Years
“Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the MANPM program has been a tremendous success. The program consistently ranks among the top five nonprofit graduate programs in the country. Current rankings include No. 3 “Best Online Nonprofit Management Programs”, No. 3 in the nation for “Most Affordable Online Nonprofit Management Programs” , and No. 7 for “Best Value Among Online Nonprofit Management Programs”.
When asked what makes this program so relevant today, Branham offered, “Relevance is usually related to the success of your graduates. Our graduates, as a group, have been extremely successful. However, when you remember that nonprofit success is measured in positive impact instead of net profits, you understand that the program is doing a service, not only to its students, but to the entire community. From that perspective the relevance is massive. Being part of the team connected to that is very satisfying.
