Success 4 Kids & Families, a nonprofit organization working to make children and families prosperous in Tampa Bay, has recently been named the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2012 Nonprofit of the Year.
In the past four years through its relationship with the Sykes College of Business, The University of Tampa has helped the nonprofit grow from a $2.3 million to a $6.4 million organization.
Success 4 Kids & Families has been the focus of graduate program course projects in the areas of marketing management, branding, information systems management and the MBA capstone course. Marketing Associate Professor Ronald Kuntze volunteers with the organization as its marketing consultant.
“This award shines a tremendously positive light on our nonprofit certificate program, since no fewer than three of the Success 4 Kids & Families administrators have enrolled in this program,” said Kuntze, referring to Executive Director Clara Reynolds MBA ’10, Pam Jeffre ’10 and Luis Casas, who is currently enrolled.
UT’s graduate-level nonprofit management program aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of emerging nonprofit executives. It was developed in partnership with the Nonprofit Leadership Center of Tampa Bay. The courses are delivered as intensive cohort-based, one-week seminars representing 12 credit hours of graduate-level instruction. Students can participate in the program in the certificate track or apply to the MBA program.
