Lead through innovation and impact.

To make a difference in your organization, you need a firm grasp of management fundamentals. You have to think and act strategically. And you need the capacity to make mission-driven decisions.

For Boston-area nonprofit leaders, the Nonprofit Management and Leadership (NML) Certificate Program at Boston University Questrom School of Business is an unparalleled opportunity to develop the skills, perspective, confidence, and network to lead a successful nonprofit organization.

You have a distinctive commitment, voice, and ambition. Combine those with the knowledge of experienced practitioners, top-rated faculty, and accomplished social entrepreneurs, and the results will astound you.

Our hands-on, sophisticated curriculum offers core management and leadership lessons, plus powerful small-group seminars led by senior fellows who are experienced nonprofit executives. It all leads to increased individual performance and more effective teamwork. In just seven months, you’ll boost your knowledge of key management fundamentals—and your organization’s impact.
