    Nonprofit Management Programs at Hamline

    Nonprofit organizations employ over 11 percent of the workforce in Minnesota, a full two points higher than the national average. You will not find a better place to embark on your advanced study of the nonprofit sector than in Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes and as many nonprofits!

    Hamline University’s Master of Nonprofit Management (MNM) is also unique in that it is part of a cross-sector initiative, hosted by the School of Business, and sitting alongside Hamline’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Public Administration (MPA) programs. MNM students can take advantage of classes in all three concentrations to enhance their skills as a community leader and collaborator with the public and private sectors.

    At a time with nonprofits experiencing both growth in numbers and an unprecedented rate of retirements, opportunities abound for nonprofit leadership. Hamline’s program provides you the knowledge and skills needed in all the components of operating successful organizations: financial management, governance and planning, fundraising, human resources and more. Hamline graduates now rank among the leadership of numerous visible nonprofits such as the American Red Cross, Second Harvest Heartland, Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, Goodwill/Easter Seals and more!

    The School of Business is dedicated to assuring our students ongoing professional development with a “theory to practice” philosophy which brings you into contact with numerous faculty with extensive sector experience and networks. Be part of a growing network of Hamline grads making the world a better place, tackling community needs and injustices with skilled problem solving and innovative solutions.

    Here are a few words from one of our Master of Nonprofit Management graduates leading the charge:

    "Throughout my studies, I applied the learning to the work I was doing—as a nonprofit consultant, a grant writer, and a nonprofit board member and now a key development position at LifeSource. The connections with faculty and fellow students add depth and dimension to the academic studies. I have developed personal and professional relationships that have and will continue to enhance my work, career and my personal life."
    - Kristin Rigg MNM ’15, fundraising coordinator, LifeSource

    I look forward to working with you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our program or want to discuss careers in the nonprofit sector.
