The Master of Nonprofit Administration (MNA) degree program prepares experienced adults for management and leadership roles in the nonprofit sector. The MNA program is designed for students already working or planning to work in nonprofit corporations, foundations, voluntary associations, community organizations, or nongovernmental organizations.
The curriculum addresses issues and problems of nonprofit management, and helps students master relevant concepts, skills, and analytic tools. Courses investigate the political, economic, legal, and social environments of nonprofit organizations. Students gain knowledge of organizational behavior and management theory, and develop skills in specific areas such as governance, fundraising, human resources management, financial management, legal issues, and advocacy.
The MNA degree requires 30 months of
coursework involving 39 credits—30 credits from core courses, including a
3-credit capstone course, and 9 credits from elective courses. The latter
may be either MNA elective courses (678, 682, 683) or other relevant graduate
courses in the University. The MNA courses are listed below:
- Completion of all degree coursework with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA
- Completion of a capstone project
- Successful completion of all degree requirements
