Custom made, just for you
You can tailor this degree to your professional goals with three specialized tracks. Choose either the Nonprofit Administration Track, which focuses on the management of nonprofit organizations, the Nonprofit Development Track, which focuses on fundraising, donor relations and cultivation, and long-term financial planning, or the Disaster Preparedness Track, which focuses on management of critical and crisis situations in primarily emergency relief organizations. Graduates have the opportunity to independently seek their Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credentials through the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.
