Joining a Movement for Change

Succeeding in the nonprofit sector takes more than a love for service. What distinguishes an effective nonprofit professional is their adaptability. The mission of most nonprofit organizations is to improve lives and environments. This industry focused on administering change takes flexible management and a continuous adaptation of ideas and tactics. A new piece of legislation could be the major issue for one day, but a lack of volunteers may be your priority the next. For-profit businesses have similar concerns. However, nonprofit organizations have more to monitor than internal problems and customer relations. Nonprofits usually have to contend with the evolution of grants opportunities, relevant bills, volunteers, elected officials, donors, and much more. 

Nonprofit professionals thrive in a movement of (and for) change which is why a nonprofit-specific degrees can be more useful than an MBA. An MBA is the most common degree earned to advance to managerial positions, but its generalization can be less effective than a nonprofit degree if you’re clear on your professional goals. If you’re debating which degree is right for you, the graduate enrollment team is happy to discuss your interests and goals to find the best fit.
