Whether you're looking to further your business skills through the certificate track or interested in taking your education to the next level with an MBA, The University of Tampa has the right option for you.

Certificate Track

In the certificate track, students complete four courses and earn graduate-level credit. Upon completion, students receive a certificate in nonprofit management. Applicants are required to have a four-year undergraduate degree. 

Degree Track

Students can apply for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program and the four courses apply to the concentration in nonprofit management. The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score report is required for all applicants to the degree track. Students with a degree higher than a bachelor’s may be exempt from taking the test.
