The Nonprofit Leadership program of Bradley University equips you to excel as a leader for human service and community action agencies.


The Nonprofit Leadership program of Bradley University, which you can complete in two years (full-time) or up to five years (part-time), focuses on developing your leadership instead of management abilities. You gain skills in strategic planning and evaluation, financial leadership, performance and accountability, personnel development, fundraising and grant writing. A final field experience with a mentor allows you to collaborate on a major project and gain firsthand knowledge of administrative duties.
