Why Business Administration (BS) + MS Nonprofit Leadership?

A BS in Business Administration and MS Nonprofit Leadership builds your general business knowledge with a specific bent toward work in the nonprofit sector. Learn what makes businesses work and how you can apply that to the nonprofit context for the betterment of those you serve. Courses concentrate on nonprofit financial management, project management, international business, and nonprofit strategy.

How it Works:

This dual-level program allows you to condense what would be six years of study (four-year bachelor’s + two-year master’s) into just five years by starting master-level courses as early as your junior year. You’ll be able to complete all requirements for both degrees in as few as five years without taking summer courses. 

You will also continue to receive your undergraduate scholarships and tuition aid for all five years of study, which will save you thousands of dollars.
