Why Nonprofit Management?

This Graduate Certificate provides a comprehensive overview of nonprofit management through an in-depth study of both theory and practice, preparing students to excel in the nonprofit sector.

Nonprofits today simply require a higher level of management expertise, and nonprofit managers are required to manage people and programs more efficiently and effectively. The online Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management focuses on developing a range of skills in organizational management, financial management, fundraising, grant and report writing, human resources management, and governance. The program integrates theoretical approaches with practical applications.

Working and collaborating via the Internet, students participate in case studies, individual and group projects, and class discussions. The program is designed for individuals who already work in the nonprofit sector as executive directors, managers, program staff, board members, or volunteers. The online format makes it easier for these working professionals to balance coursework with their other commitments, and offers a level of interaction that more than equals the educational experience delivered in a traditional classroom.
