Nonprofit Management and Leadership MS
To be admitted to the M.S. in Nonprofit Management and Leadership degree program, an applicant must meet Graduate School requirements.
During the admissions process, students will be asked to show evidence of having satisfactorily completed undergraduate or higher level foundation coursework in the principles of accounting and economics. Those students who are unable to show such evidence may be admitted with these academic deficiencies but will then meet with their respective academic advisors to identify and obtain approval for what they must do to remove these deficiencies.
The student is expected to satisfy deficiency requirements within three enrolled semesters. The deficiencies are monitored by the Graduate School and the individual graduate program unit. No course credits earned in making up deficiencies may be counted as program credits required for the degree.
Applicants must submit the following for review by the Graduate School and the Nonprofit Management Program Faculty Committee: Official transcripts from all colleges or universities previously attended. Three letters of recommendation from persons familiar with the applicant's academic ability and/or professional achievements. Scores from either the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). For those students whose native language is not English, minimum TOEFL score (Test of English as a Foreign Language) of 550 PBT or 79 iBT or minimum IELTS score (International English Language Testing System) of 6.5. Each student's academic preparation is evaluated at the time of application. A personal interview may be required.
Major Professor as Advisor
The student must have a major professor to advise and supervise the student's studies as specified in Graduate School regulations. A student who is not assigned to an advisor at the time of admission should immediately contact the Program Director.
