PhD - Nonprofit Management and Leadership

Prepare yourself to take a leadership role in your community. Changing demographics, an aging population, reductions in government programs, and other societal changes are increasing the need for nonprofit leaders with the skills to develop innovative solutions to these emerging challenges. This Nonprofit Management and Leadership doctoral specialization is designed around industry standards for nonprofit management education, including the graduate curriculum guidelines established by the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC). You will study such topics as organizational and community collaborations; multicultural and diverse population needs; employee and volunteer development; legal, regulatory, and tax issues; financial analysis and reporting; marketing; program evaluation; strategic planning; and advanced skills in fund development and stewardship—all from a nonprofit perspective. Simulations, group problem-solving, and real-time coaching sessions are used to strengthen the collaboration and communication skills needed by nonprofit leaders. You will also add to the nonprofit management body of knowledge with your own doctoral research. People who choose this specialization often wish to pursue leadership, faculty, or consulting positions in nonprofit organizations or are considering starting their own nonprofit organization.
