MNPL- Executive Master of Nonprofit Leadership

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MNPL program is proud that more than 86 percent of its graduates are now nonprofit or philanthropic executives in the Pacific Northwest. Others have moved into new leadership roles on boards while continuing employment in business, government or the professions. The average graduate has seen a 21 percent increase in salary within one year of graduation. The MNPL requires 45 credits through 13 courses offered in 16 months. A class of 25 to 30 students is admitted each year and this cohort proceeds through the program together. The final course allows each student to pursue in-depth research on a subject of personal interest. Upon acceptance into the program, students are asked to collect assessments from their employers on their current capabilities in the core competencies that provide the basis for the program's curriculum. The feedback is used to guide each student during the program.
