A Master of Science, or MSc, is one of the two most common master’s degree designations; the other being the Master of Arts. Generally achieved within two to three years’ time, many students choose to pursue this degree to enhance career opportunities and earning potential.

Just what is an MSc in NPO? The nonprofit sector has experienced considerable growth in recent years, leading many in the field to pursue master’s degrees as a means of advancing their careers. This relatively new master’s degree program emphasizes skills of relevance to professionals who hold management and leadership roles within the nonprofit sector. While there is some degree of variation among nonprofit organization master’s degree programs, students should expect thorough review and study of areas like strategic finance, accounting for nonprofit organizations, ethics and human resources considerations, and nonprofit governance and law, among other areas.  

Most Master of Science in Nonprofit Organization degree-holders earn higher salaries than those in the field with bachelor’s degrees, or those without degrees. They are also more likely to assume upper-level positions within nonprofit organization administration and related fields than those lacking advanced degrees. Graduates of these programs are also prepared to continue their education and pursue doctorate degrees, if desired.

There is substantial variation in the cost of nonprofit organization and management master’s degree programs. Students are encouraged to consult each school they are considering for current tuition rates and information.

The number of nonprofit and philanthropic entities around the world has exploded in recent years, enhancing job prospects for those with advanced nonprofit organization or management degrees. Many graduates of these programs go on to work in education, social services, community development and planning or government. Others become entrepreneurs or advocates for various nonprofit or social service organizations.

Bachelor’s degree-holders interested in furthering their education and expanding their career opportunities within the nonprofit sector are encouraged to explore our database for available nonprofit master’s degree programs around the globe.
