The MS in Nonprofit Management blended online residency program is one of only a few graduate programs in the country focused on management needs specific to the nonprofit sector.
Eastern University designed its MS in Nonprofit Management program in response to the needs faced by the nonprofit sector today. Increasing competition in the nonprofit marketplace mandates that if an organization is to remain viable, effective management tools must be developed and applied. This program focuses on helping present and future leaders in the not-for-profit sector gain solid analytical and problem-solving skills unique to nonprofit organizations.
Easternâ€™s nonprofit management degree is offered as a blended online and weekend residency program in the Philadelphia Area.Â Students meet in class for ten weekends over the course ofÂ 24 months, with research and field-based learning in the interim.
With convenient class locations and weekend sessions, working individuals are able to balance their busy work schedules with their classroom agendas. In-class discussions, relationship building between instructors and students, as well as independent research and project development are among the attributes of the program.Â All students enrolled in the MS in Nonprofit Management program are considered full-time, and thus are eligible for federally guaranteed student loans.
