Master of Nonprofit Leadership

Ignite your leadership potential.

Accelerate your career.

Change the world.

The Master of Nonprofit Leadership program teaches you how to lead so that you can change the world.  

In collaboration with our faculty and your cohort of peers, you will learn to think critically, act on your values, and apply classroom theory to real-world problems. 

Our program is designed for working professionals; classes are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays. 

Core courses focus on leadership, governance, planning, finance, fundraising, marketing and communications, human resources management, and program design and evaluation. Electives allow you to explore your interests in greater depth.  Through a practicum, you will apply theory in a professional setting.  

As a graduate, you will join our network of alumni who are working and leading for social change across the region and beyond.

We invite you to learn more.  If you would like to speak with someone directly, please contact Lindsay Ohab at
