Building partnerships with nonprofit practitioners is one of the key initiatives of the Center for Nonprofit Management at the Kellog School of Management (Northwestern University). Founded in 1998 with the support of the WK Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Mich., the Center builds on the Kellogg School’s long tradition of serving the governmental and nonprofit sector with management education.
The Center’s mission is to become an internationally recognized resource in the field of nonprofit management education and higher education through our graduate degree and executive management programs. We aim to harness the resources of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University â€” teaching, research, case writing, consulting and volunteering â€” to partner with the nonprofit community.
Specifically, the Center has four objectives:
to enhance the existing Kellogg School MBA curriculum
to expand our outreach and partnership with the nonprofit community
to initiate and support scholarly research in the sector and
to provide outstanding executive education programs for nonprofit leaders
The Center relies on the expertise of academic faculty as well as practitioners from various areas of the nonprofit sector. It is this bridge between the academic community and the nonprofit sector that makes the Center for Nonprofit Management a unique entity. We encourage you to explore our Web site to learn more about the objectives of the Center and see how we are helping to address the challenges facing the nonprofit world in the 21st century.
