The program provides an opportunity to obtain an advanced degree that addresses the unique character of nonprofit organizations and the social sector. Students interested in nonprofit management and social sector organizations explore research, theory, and the practice of management and leadership in the nonprofit sector. Students who complete the degree gain leadership skills and knowledge in topics such as the management of human resources (both paid and volunteer), fund raising, program evaluation, fiscal management, and governance in nonprofit organizations.
