The Master of Science in Nonprofit Leadership from La Salle University pulls from the disciplines of finance, marketing, planning, evaluation, and more, in order to develop the understanding needed to be a successful nonprofit leader. 


Graduates of this Master of Science in Nonprofit Leadership program from La Salle University will not only have gained the interdisciplinary framework and knowledge needed to lead, but also have had an opportunity to apply that knowledge and learn the challenges of aligning theory and practice.

Program Goals

The program has the following three broad goals:

  • to give students a theoretically based, practice-oriented, best practices framework for leading in the nonprofit sector of the 21st century, which translates into competencies in finance, fund development, governance, human resources, marketing, and planning;
  • to emphasize the practical and real time application of knowledge gained, to ensure that students don’t just learn ideas about leading a nonprofit but also have experienced how to organize and assess them in the real world under the tutelage of an experienced professional; and
  • to ensure that both the knowledge and experience gained are solidly rooted in ethical practice.  Thus, while there is a course focused on the law and ethics of nonprofits, ethical practice will run continuously through each class in the curriculum.

  • Nonprofit Management

  • Fund Development for Nonprofits
