Successful leadership of a nonprofit organization requires careful and transparent financial management, strong grant-writing and fundraising skills, and the ability to translate a mission into action. The Nonprofit Management concentration from Concordia University, Nebraska will prepare you to make an impact in your community and your career as you work to create a better society.
Nonprofit organizations are granted tax-exempt status from the IRS because they serve the public good. Examples range from small volunteer-run organizations to churches, hospitals, and universities. Nonprofits are mission-driven organizations dedicated to making a positive impact in the community, but they also need to be financially viable. Like their for-profit counterparts, though, nonprofits also require strategic management to run efficiently and work effectively.
The Nonprofit Management concentration also fits within Concordia Nebraska’s mission as a traditional nonprofit university with a faith-based approach to learning: Our goal is to create effective servant-leaders through rigorous academics, supported by caring, experienced instructors. We’re an ideal environment to study the principles and practices of running an organization that measures success through service.
The MBA curriculum is specifically designed to have immediate real-world application – this means you can take what you learn in class and immediately apply it to your job. Evening courses also let you advance your education without taking time away from your current job. Our cohort-based approach also gives you the support of fellow students – build a professional network and reinforce case studies as you learn with your peers. Concordia Nebraska’s personalized career enhancement package also ensures you will receive the in-depth career support you need, for as long as you need it.
