Why Non-Profit Management?

When I first came to UW-Whitewater as a freshman, like most of my peers, my degree was undeclared.  I knew I had an interest in people, specifically how they internalize their environment, justify their worldview, and how this influences their relationships to others.  I had a desire to understand people with backgrounds unlike my own.  I started in psychology, dabbled in sociology and theology, and eventually fell into the business school.  Now I am in my final year pursuing a major in general management.

Management offers job versatility across all industries, and yet, I am still unsure which direction this education will carry me. I was ecstatic when the course Foundations of Nonprofit & Nongovernmental Organizations became an option for my senior electives.  To understand people, their needs, goals, and their own purpose of life is important to me.  I want to help those individuals that otherwise might not have been given a chance to be heard, and I, in the meantime, will make the personal connections and experiences I would not find anywhere else.

The scope of the non-profit sector is vast, but wielding my education as my weapon, I hope to find my place in it.
