Mercyhurst launches program in nonprofit management

The Mercyhurst College Office of Adult and Graduate Programs announces a new Web-based concentration in nonprofit management as part of its 30-credit Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (OL) program. Qualified students may also pursue the nonprofit management curriculum as a 12-credit graduate certificate, with credits transferable to the OL program.

The OL program includes six core courses in leadership theory and practice, three Web-based courses in nonprofit management, and a thesis. Classes meet one evening per week during each of three 11-week terms. Online courses are available every term.

Topics include leadership theory, organizational behavior, applied ethics, communication, information technology, financial management in nonprofit organizations, marketing and public relations for nonprofits, human resources and volunteer management, and research methods.

New students may apply for fall, winter or spring admission and may attend either part time or full time. Full time students may apply for graduate assistantships. 

The 12-credit graduate certificate includes three online courses in nonprofit management and one classroom offering in leadership theory and practice. Topics include financial management in nonprofit organizations, marketing and public relations for nonprofits, and human resources and volunteer management.
