Build a Brighter Future With a Master’s in Nonprofit Management
As one of the fastest-growing fields in the nation, nonprofit work provides opportunities to make an impact — from international work to the local community. Take bold steps toward a better future for everyone by confronting some of society’s greatest issues and advocating for a number of causes.
A Master of Nonprofit Management (MNM) equips students with the skills necessary to understand and manage all components of nonprofit organizations — preparing them for employment or to advance their career in a leadership role. Throughout the program, delve into volunteerism, resource management, grant management, ethics, program evaluation and more. Through service learning, students take skills from the classroom and apply them to the real world, all while building community partnerships and a professional network. Students can also choose to stand out among their peers by earning the National Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Certification, recognizing their achievements and standards in nonprofit management.
Out-of-State Cohort Track
Designed for students who currently reside outside the state of Florida, this track provides the same quality education to prepare for a rewarding career within the nonprofit sector. Admission standards and degree requirements match those of the traditional program.
Nonprofit Management (MNM), Public Administration (MPA) Dual Track
For students interested in an MNM and MPA, this track provides a pathway to earn both degrees simultaneously. An additional 18 credit hours outside of the MNM program, courses cover research, theory, policy and organizational administration to prepare future public service organizational leaders. The courses included in the MPA track can also be completed either fully online or at UCF’s downtown campus.
