Master of Science in Nonprofit Management and Leadership

The Master of Science (M.S.) in Nonprofit Management and Leadership, launched in the fall of 2006 as the first degree program of its kind in the state of Wisconsin, is jointly offered by the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business and the College of Letters and Science.

The curriculum emphasizes a broad understanding of the social, economic, and political roles and functions of nonprofit organizations and their interdependent relationships with business and government; a set of core managerial functions related to generating and managing financial and human resources in nonprofit organizations; and an in-depth understanding of the governance roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards of trustees. It is designed to provide students with the essential management knowledge and skills needed to successfully pursue or advance careers in nonprofit sector organizations.

Courses are offered once a week in the evenings.  The degree consists of 39 credit hours, 27 credits of required courses, and 12 credits of elective courses.
