Through the BS program in nonprofit leadership and management, students are empowered to become successful professionals who work to advance the quality of life in communities. The nonprofit sector in the United States is unique in form and function. This sector includes institutions and individuals situated between government, public, business and commerce sectors.
Students in the nonprofit leadership and management program learn about the nonprofit sector through curriculum instruction and field experience. Many students in the nonprofit sector work with American Indian populations. The concentration in American Indian studies familiarizes students with American Indian worldviews, current issues and tribal governance.
The required internship component of the program leads students to professional opportunities within the nonprofit sector. Students also may choose to pursue the National Certified Nonprofit Professional credential through ASU's affiliation with the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance: https://www.nonprofitleadershipalliance.org/credential.
