Nonprofit Management Degree

Majors in nonprofit management learn how to manage the business concerns of nonprofits. These include charities, political organizations, schools, and government agencies. Classes cover everything from finances and human resources to taxes and laws.

Managers perform duties such as planning, directing, and coordinating the daily operations of establishments. They are also generally involved in the financial and budgetary aspects of the organization.

Management is not easy. Managers take responsibility for the performance of their teams, departments, or organizations, as well as coordinate with other teams, departments, organizations, and the environment. They make sure that the organization continues to produce what is needed as technologies, markets, and governments change. The managerial job is not as concrete as hammering a nail, removing an appendix, or floating a bond issue, but very few concrete tasks could be done without the organizational infrastructure managers create and maintain.
