Nonprofit Management Overview
Nonprofits serve as indispensable forces and facilitators of positive social change for underserved and marginalized individuals and communities. Their challenging work is essential to community well-being, making them crucial to the health and success of our nation. Now, more than ever, innovative nonprofit leaders with specialized training are needed to develop sustainable efforts to complex problems and to build more effective organizations from the inside out.
Offered in two convenient Executive Formats, our Master of Arts in Nonprofit Management equips nonprofit professionals with a specialized skill set that prepares them for leadership roles in their current organization or ones that are aligned with their goals. This highly relevant and rigorous master's degree helps both new and experienced advocates become more effective agents for social justice in their nonprofit world, wherever they may be. The Executive Format format allows students to balance existing professional and personal responsibilities while they complete this degree program.
This comprehensive master's program is led by experienced and accomplished faculty who guide students through all aspects of nonprofit management, including grant writing, fundraising, marketing, advocacy, research, and program development. The curriculum focuses on understanding the underlying factors that contribute to growing inequities in the socio-political structure and how to work with community stakeholders to create positive and sustainable change. Graduates will learn how to find effective and creative ways to streamline processes, maximize efficiency and bridge existing barriers as needed.
Students will complete a nonprofit capstone project that demonstrates their commitment to Adler's mission toward building a more just society. They will conceptualize and build their technical skills through the use of an on-going and distinctive e-portfolio project. This assignment also serves as a specialized CV/resume and impressive calling card for Adler graduates.
