Center for Nonprofit Management


Leaders of nonprofit organizations face many new challenges in this increasingly competitive world. The Center for Nonprofit Management provides outstanding academic programs for nonprofit practitioners to hone their skills and to develop additional competencies to take their enterprises to even greater success.

In addition to lectures and cases, instructors use problem-solving and role-playing exercises to promote group learning and they invite leading practitioners to share their experience with participants.
