About Northeastern University Seattle

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN NONPROFIT MANAGEMENT
Designed for individuals who wish to pursue a management or leadership position in the nonprofit sector, the Master of Science in Nonprofit Management offers a comprehensive perspective on the social, legal, cultural, and organizational issues that impact today’s nonprofit organizations. Facing the threat of privatization and for-profit competition, nonprofit organizations are challenged to find leaders who not only possess keen business and managerial skills, but can also effect change at a community or social level. The program integrates theoretical approaches with practical applications and prepares you for a leadership position in a not-for-profit university, hospital, charity, foundation, or religious organization.

GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN NONPROFIT MANAGEMENT
A Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management is also available and focuses on developing skills in organizational management, financial management, fundraising, grant and report writing, human resources management, and governance. The certificate program targets individuals who work in the non-profit sector as executive directors, managers, program staff, board members, and volunteers. Certificate students can also apply all of these courses directly to the Master of Science in Nonprofit Management.
