Nonprofit Business & Social Enterprise
Concentration in Nonprofit Business & Social Enterprise
The Nonprofit Business & Social Enterprise concentration can be combined with a major or concentration in a nonbusiness area such as Social Work, Communication, Church Ministries, Intercultural Studies, and International Multi-cultural Studies to develop the ability to help manage and promote the organization and services you are interested in providing. The concentration is much stronger than a minor and equivalent to the non-comprehensive majors offered in many areas.
The Marketing concentration consists of courses that provide a basic foundation in accounting, economics, marketing, law, management and strategic management along with courses that specifically address nonprofit and social enterprise issues. The concentration is designed to allow students to select 9 credits of electives that give emphasis to either management or promotion.
