What is an MA in NPO? A master's degree in NPO (Non-Profit Organizations) focuses on the unique skills necessary for managing and leading a not-for-profit business or organization. It teaches students about the management and leadership skills necessary to be an executive or manager of a non-profit, while focusing on the nuances of the NPO environment. Courses focus on the legal and regulatory guidelines of a not-for-profit organization, how to communicate effectively, how to lead teams, and how to effectively resolve conflicts. Students may also study the different components of managing a nonprofit, including marketing, accounting, and communication.

Because the nonprofit sector has unique funding and management structures, those looking to work in management or executive level jobs need to be educated on the nuances of this environment. An advanced degree provides details about how to successfully run an NPO.

Institutions around the world offer advanced degrees in managing and leading NPOs. Each university or learning institution develops its own fee structure, which may also be influenced by the geographical location. To find out the cost of a program, interested students should contact the school directly.

Most graduates with an MA in NPO go on to work in management and executive level positions for not-for-profit businesses or organizations, which can range from large, international humanitarian organizations to small, local performing arts centers or museums. Some graduates find work with local charities or religious organizations, while others choose to work in national or international NPOs.

Obtaining an MA in NPO provides graduates with the skills to become a leader and successfully manage a nonprofit.
