A New Emphasis on Nonprofit Management

Did you know that approximately ten percent of people employed in the United States work for a nonprofit organization?  And that that number exceeds 12% here in Wisconsin?  That the nonprofit sector contributes more than $900 billion to the U.S. economy?  The nonprofit sector is a big deal!

Starting this fall (2018), General Management majors at UW-W CoBE can elect an emphasis in Nonprofit Studies.  The emphasis requires three courses:

  • Foundations in Nonprofit and Nongovernment Organizations (MGT 370) Our initial nonprofit management course examines the scope and impact of this growing sector, as well as its relationship to business and public sectors.
  • Public Policy Analysis and Advocacy (POLISCI 330) Offers a systematic introduction to the study of public policy through an analytical problem-solving approach as well as examining other models and approaches across sectors.
  • Cooperative/Internship in Management (MGT 493) A practical internship course, offered as a constructed-supervised work experience within the major area of concentration of the student. The internship experience offers the student an opportunity to participate in day-to-day activity in nonprofits. It is supported by an online credit course.

Currently, Management 370 is offered every fall.  PoliSci 330 and Management 493 are offered every semester.

Our faculty members bring practical experience in a variety of nonprofit settings, as well as expertise and research into aspects of nonprofit management.  Watch this space for a series of articles on what each member brings to the UW-W Nonprofit program.

UW-W CoBE is a member of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council.
