Nonprofit Executive Education

 About us 

about us landing

Dear Friends:

Welcome to Nonprofit Professional Development at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. Our degree and non-degree programs, are uniquely tailored to develop exemplary leaders in nonprofit organizations.

The degree offering, a Master of Nonprofit Administration, encourages students to earn a graduate business degree with a limited commitment of on campus learning while maintaining full-time employment. 

The non-degree offerings are certificate initiatives for nonprofit leaders who may have strong program skills, but little formal business education. Such programs usually demand at least ten days of class time along with a field project. We collaborate with a variety of partners to design quality programs that align well the special needs of different networks of service providers.  Yet all such programs share a common focus on visionary leadership on the one hand, and on new tools for better organizational management on the other. The combination of vision and practical tools really empowers participants to lead their organizations into a preferred future.
