Certificate in Nonprofit Management

Nonprofit organizations (NPO) are no longer an afterthought in the U.S. economy; in fact, they represent 10% of the domestic workforce. At the helm of an NPO or non-governmental organization, one can help fill the important service gaps in healthcare, education, and community outreach that the public and private sectors cannot.

The nonprofit sector continues to grow, and impactful leaders need to drive sustainable and innovative programs. In the Nonprofit Management program, students gain practical knowledge to manage organizational change, craft successful fundraising strategies, and develop social enterprises for nonprofits. Students learn to think critically and act strategically and ethically to serve mission-driven organizations while expanding their management skills and ability to lead.

The Certificate in Nonprofit Management focuses on individuals with an interest in learning more about the nonprofit sector. The design of the certificate is to meet the needs of practicing executives in nonprofit settings and for students who seek to learn about managing and leading a nonprofit entity with business acumen. The certificate is offered completely online to meet the schedule of busy professionals.

Courses are offered in the Fast-Track format. With only 5 courses required in the certificate, students can complete the certificate in three semesters (Fall-Spring-Summer).
