Managing a successful not-for-profit organization is very similar to managing a business. Concordia University Chicago’s MBA specialization in not-for-profit management addresses the unique attributes of a not-for-profit organization while providing a solid business foundation in areas such as management, finance, and marketing. Our academic history is deeply rooted in preparing students to serve others, and our professors exemplify this tradition.
Concordia University Chicago's not-for-profit management MBA specialization and certificate courses give students a grounding in the unique legal structure and mission of not-for-profit organizations. Students learn about the rules regarding board formation and governance, grant writing and funding sources. A key objective is to build students skills to the point where they can successfully complete a capstone project on grant writing, management and evaluation.
