Nonprofits provide many valuable services – from feeding the homeless and assisting military veterans to organizing recreational activities and promoting various social or political causes. Behind every successful nonprofit is a team of passionate, creative professionals who have a desire to serve their community, a knack for driving organizational growth, and the ability to lead and inspire others to accomplish a mission.

If you want to take on a leadership position in the nonprofit sector, Liberty University’s online Master of Nonprofit Management (MNM) may be right for you. This program provides deep insight into social responsibility and teaches practical methods for managing the day-to-day operations of a nonprofit organization. Throughout your courses, you can learn how to develop strategic plans and innovative solutions using research outcomes, industry literature, and best practices.

Maybe you’re an experienced nonprofit professional looking to take the next step in your career – or perhaps you have a background in another area and want to transition into the rewarding field of nonprofit work. Either way, our Master of Nonprofit Management degree can help provide the tools you need to lead with integrity and improve the lives of those around you.

Our master’s in nonprofit management online can help you gain the leadership, communication, and decision-making skills you need to pursue top-level roles in your organization. Some of the topics you’ll study include board governance, nonprofit accounting standards, and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs). You’ll also explore various fundraising and development strategies with an emphasis on donor cultivation, capital campaigns, and stewardship.

Additionally, this degree can help you learn how to research and write effective grant proposals so you can obtain essential funds for your organization. Nonprofits operate in a variety of social, political, and economic contexts, and the skills taught in this program can help you overcome challenges you will face throughout your career.

In addition to studying core nonprofit management topics, you will also specialize in a particular area of study. We offer a wide range of specializations – from financial management to entrepreneurship – so you can pursue your passion and broaden your skill set. The capstone course can help you synthesize your knowledge as you learn how to apply strategic planning and ethics to nonprofit work.
