MBA in Nonprofit Management
The four-semester MBA program is intended for social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders dedicated
to creating solutions for today's most pressing social and humanitarian challenges. The curriculum is
designed to provide a culturally diverse student body with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to
affect impactful and sustainable social change. Special emphasis is placed on organizational vision,
strategy, and program implementation using “design theory” and other innovative and entrepreneurial
approaches to nonprofit management.
Alongside a core nonprofit curriculum, students may select one of two tracks as their area of
specialization: (1) Social Entrepreneurship, and (2) Fundraising and Fund Development. Completion of a
track will be noted ontheir diploma at graduation. Each track includes two courses plus an applied
learning preceptorship and individual professional and career coaching. Students not electing to pursue
a track may select elective courses offered in any of the two tracks.
Students enrolled in the program will share a vision of themselves as change-agents. Using a team
approach to problem-solving, students will progress through the program as a cohort, learning and
experiencing the creative advantages of the group process. On graduation, students will be ready to
envision, launch, and manage a wide variety of nonprofit organizations.
