This accreditation acknowledges that DU program’s curriculum reflects “the best thinking of our day” and represents a “nonprofit/philanthropy-first philosophy and perspective.”
With this recognition, students can be assured they’re acquiring skills and gaining knowledge to advance an organization’s mission and deepen its impact.
Instructors in the program are nonprofit experts and leaders themselves, and infuse real-world insights and successful strategies into their teaching.
The program allows each student to dig deep into the areas that interest them, with master’s degree and certificate concentrations in:
- Executive Governance and Leadership
