MBA with a Concentration in Nonprofit Management

Christian leaders addressing today’s challenging issues

The challenges of leading and managing a nonprofit organization, in today’s competitive fundraising and marketing climate, inspired Crown College to develop its online MBA with a Concentration in Nonprofit Management. The unique Christ-centered, online, nonprofit MBA produces executives who thoroughly comprehend the complexities of leading and managing a nonprofit organization.

Crown’s online master’s in nonprofit management degree program includes 15 credits of content critical to the success and sustainability of nonprofit organizations: Leadership and Management for Nonprofits, Nonprofit Law, Fundraising and Philanthropy, Financial Management for the Nonprofit, and Marketing for Nonprofits. Crown recognizes that developing expertise in marketing, fundraising and navigating the nonprofit environment is of tremendous value to students whose first degree isn’t business-focused. At the same time, the program complements other majors with its strong leadership orientation.

Christian leaders are needed to address the most challenging humanitarian and social problems in our communities. The curriculum for the online nonprofit MBA with a Concentration in Nonprofit Management includes a Spiritual Foundations for Leadership Course. In addition, the curriculum intentionally integrates a Christian worldview throughout every course and activity. Using supplementary textbooks, students examine content, experiences and learning through a God-centered lens.

Crown’s online MBA with a Concentration in Nonprofit Management can be completed in 2½ years. Each course is seven weeks long. While with Crown, students apply their nonprofit MBA online learning to real work situations in the nonprofit sector, in order to make an impact in organizations and communities. Crown’s online master’s degree in nonprofit management uniquely positions students to grow professionally and lead others from a faith-based perspective, while in school and after.

Begin the next stage of your professional life today.

“In today’s nonprofit environment, the value-added aspects of this unique degree—specifically designed to create successful and effective nonprofit leaders and managers—are critical to the success and sustainability of nonprofit organizations around the globe.” – Dr. Fawn McCracken, Dean of the Graduate School

With 98 percent of our students receiving some form of financial aid, we will work with you to figure out the best financial aid package available.
