The four-semester MBA program is intended for social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders dedicated to creating solutions for today's most pressing social and humanitarian challenges. The curriculum is designed to provide a culturally diverse student body with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to effect impactful and sustainable social change. Special emphasis is placed on organizational vision, strategy and program implementation using “design theory” and other innovative and entrepreneurial approaches to nonprofit management.
Alongside a very strong core nonprofit curriculum, students may select one of three tracks as their area of specialization, Social Entrepreneurship in a Diverse World and Fundraising and Fund Development. Completion of the track will be noted on their diploma at graduation. Each track includes three courses plus a preceptorship. Students not electing to pursue a specific track may select three elective courses offered in any of the three tracks.
Students enrolled in the program will share a vision of themselves as change-agents. Using a team approach to problem solving, they will progress through the program as a cohort, learning and experiencing the creative advantages of group process. Upon graduation, they will be ready to envision, launch and manage a wide variety of nonprofit organizations.
