Program Description


The nonprofit manager is responsible for all aspects of an organization, and handles everything from structuring board meetings to creating a strategic plan for fundraising and securing adequate media exposure. Like their for-profit counterparts, managers in non-profit organizations plan, direct, and control aspects of the organization’s work to ensure the effective and efficient utilization of resources (including staff), so the goals of the organization can be achieved and the organization can survive and thrive.

​This program features courses that will provide foundational knowledge on skills used in managing a nonprofit organization. Topics include strategic planning; the development, monitoring, and control of budgets; management of  programs, staff, and other resources; grant development and writing; creating and delivering presentations; and fundraising, marketing, and promotion of the organization. 

Students​ entering this program should have good planning and organizational skills, strong oral and written communication skills, strong interpersonal skills, and strong problem solving skills.

Students will be better prepared to effectively assist in the management of a non-profit organization.​ A wide variety of career opportunities are available in the numerous areas of a non-profit organization. Additional career information may be found in Career Coach: https://ccbcmd.emsicc.com/.
