Business analytics concentration

Businesses need leaders who can make data-driven decisions.

Leadership and change management concentration

The ability to lead organizations through times of change is a highly sought-after skill set. With Hamline’s leadership and change concentration, you’ll develop your own negotiation, conflict management, and project management skills while learning how to enhance the performance of others and facilitate constructive engagement leading to sustainable change.

Nonprofit management concentration

Whether you are working in a nonprofit organization or with nonprofit organizations, it is important to understand the internal processes that make nonprofit organizations different. With a concentration in nonprofit management, you will gain skills and knowledge in nonprofit finance, fundraising, and strategic management which are at the center of leading nonprofit organizations.

Customized concentration

This option is for students who are motivated to study a topic relevant to their degree program in depth. Customized concentrations require 12 credits of graduate elective coursework and may be comprised of graduate courses at Hamline University and approved transfer courses.
