About the Program

The Master of Science
in Nonprofit Management

Since its inception in 1982, more than a thousand men and women of diverse backgrounds have received graduate degrees in nonprofit mamagement from Spertus. The Master of Science in Nonprofit Management (MSNM) program was initiated to further Spertus’ commitment to the community and continues to exemplify that commitment today. Graduates have improved the impact and effectiveness of many Chicago-area nonprofit and governmental organizations.
