Note Dame of Maryland’s nonprofit management programs help students cultivate the skills and develop the knowledge needed to succeed as leaders in today’s nonprofit sector. Our program was created over a decade ago to satisfy an unfulfilled need: educating committed, mission-driven individuals who have dedicated their lives to nonprofit service. With the assistance of executives in local nonprofits both large and small, a curriculum was developed to address the unique challenges of nonprofit leadership and management while also teaching the fundamentals of nonprofit business operations.
The program equips current and future nonprofit leaders to effectively manage the challenges, risks and opportunities in nonprofit management. Courses emphasize leadership, resource management, program development, fundraising and strategic planning. Practical application of theories distinct to nonprofits is a core component of the program; for those currently working in a nonprofit, coursework can become an extension of the programs and projects you are already passionate about.
Notre Dame of Maryland’s graduate program caters to working professionals, with evening classes to accommodate busy schedules. Most courses are held on Notre Dame’s beautiful Main Campus in Baltimore City, and a selection of online and hybrid electives add flexibility.
Notre Dame of Maryland University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and by the Maryland State Department of Education.
