Make a Difference
Through UT and the Nonprofit Leadership Center of Tampa Bay, MBA students have a unique opportunity to concentrate in nonprofit management. Additionally, non-MBA students may participate in the certificate track of nonprofit management — a great option for current social sector organization leaders in the Tampa Bay area. Graduate business faculty in partnership with leading nonprofit practitioners teach courses that aim to strengthen current nonprofit managers and train the rising generation of industry leaders. Nationwide, it is estimated that more than 600,000 new senior managers will be needed in the nonprofit sector during the next five years. The program focuses on effective board governance, strategic planning, understanding and creating budgets, marketing and fund development, conducting feasibility studies and tapping leadership potential — all topics designed to help students become better managers.
“Our nonprofit management program seeks to build the capacity of the nonprofit community. We’re training the next generation of nonprofit leaders to be strategic and efficient, sharpening both marketing and financial skills. It’s an innovative program.”
