Public Administration - Non-Profit Management at Kean University is a mixture of students, some of whom are currently working in government, nonprofit or health care, while others are looking to get their careers started or even to change fields altogether. Whichever situation you're in, Kean will get you to your goal.


Public Administration - Non-Profit Management at Kean University was designed by our faculty in consultation with our Board of Advisors and the nonprofit community to provide our students with the foundation to become effective leaders of nonprofit and voluntary organizations. 

This concentration prepares you to begin or advance in careers as administrators in nonprofit organizations providing you with the knowledge, the values and the skills to work effectively and to administer programs in virtually any segment of the social service community. Your coursework covers the critical elements of administration, including budgeting, strategic planning, human resources, information systems, non-profit law, leadership and ethics, and multicultural competencies. We help you focus on the unique nature and needs of nonprofit organizations and gain the skills and knowledge specific to and necessary for leadership in this growing and dynamic sector. The sheer diversity of nonprofit organizations and the issues they work on means that nonprofits require leaders with a thorough understanding of the complex nonprofit landscape.
