Welcome to the University of Georgia's Institute for Nonprofit Organizations, offering the Master of Arts in Nonprofit Management and Leadership (MA NML ).
The Institute provides an interdisciplinary group of graduate teaching, research, and service programs that focus upon improving the leadership and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations.
The Institute was created in response to current trends in the U.S. economy and public policy that underscored the need for more effective leaders, managers and professional staff throughout the nonprofit sector. Labor force statistics project dramatic increases in employment in this sector. Emerging changes in public policy suggest that demands on nonprofit organizations will increase sharply and that well-prepared leaders will be essential for the survival and health of these organizations.
The Institute offers an array of opportunities for students, professionals and scholars of nonprofit organizations as well as those seeking careers in this field. It prepares students with knowledge and skills necessary for management and leadership roles in nonprofit organizations, and it develops and disseminates knowledge to strengthen the effectiveness of those already in leadership positions.
