New online MA in NGO/Nonprofit Management

The Johns Hopkins Center for Advanced Governmental Studies announces its newest degree offering: the Master of Arts in NGO Management.

The new degree is entirely online and is designed for students to gain the technical skills needed to lead, manage, and/or work within the field of nongovernmental/nonprofit management. The specialized field of NGO management focuses on the analysis, critical evaluation, problem-solving, and professional application you need to work within the field efficiently and effectively. Students will develop strong leadership skills, learn best practices, and realize their ability to manage projects from concept to implementation.

Students are required to complete 10 courses: six core courses, three electives in one area of focus, and one experiential or research-based capstone. The areas of focus include international mission-based organizations; project management, evaluation, and leadership; or social enterprise. Each is designed to give students a competitive edge in the nonprofit sector. For students seeking professional advancement, the center also offers a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
