The Master of Nonprofit Management (MNM) at the University of Oregon is a comprehensive professional degree that prepares students for leadership of nonprofit and philanthropic (grant-making) organizations. 


Due to the astonishing growth of the nonprofit sector in the past 30 years in the U.S. and the equally rapid growth of nongovernmental organizations internationally (INGOs), the sector has professionalized. Nonprofit employees now seek master’s degree–level training to advance their careers and specialize in nonprofit administration.


Recent graduates of the Nonprofit Management program at the University of Oregon have obtained positions such as:

  • statewide coordinator for a network of social service organizations
  • food bank development associate
