SUMMARY

Going to school for Non-Profit Management is a valuable choice and generally a requisite first step for undergrads aspiring to enter a career as a foundation director, a managing director, or a partnership executive. In fact, non-profit management is an uncommon major ranking as the 303rd most popular area of study. Last year alone, there were 374 non-profit management diplomas received. In-state tuition for non-profit management at private schools is, on average, 2.7 times more costly than their public fellows.

With just 67 universities offering this degree there might be a more finite list of the institutions you can choose from. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other non-profit management students, look at colleges in South Carolina which have the most students admitted to non-profit management annually. Zooming out, the top region to get a degree in non-profit management is in the Southeast region with Oakwood University, University of South Carolina-Columbia, and Austin Peay State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study non-profit management is the Southeastern Conference with University of South Carolina-Columbia representing the conference. Based on our extensive list on the best colleges, our choice for the best university for non-profit management is Drexel University.

The 'best' school might not actually be the best school for you. There can be lots of angels to think about when deciding on college. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could modify one's inclinations on which school to attend. At Authority, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which non-profit management school is home to the top campus, the answer is High Point University. If you are very interested in which college is home to the finest campus, then we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more in order to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life and our pick of the university with the best student life for non-profit management is University of Central Florida. Curious why? Keep scrolling to discover more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our picks will probably surprise you.

If cost is a primary deciding factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might be cautious about Drexel University. Drexel University is our most expensive college for non-profit management, at least regarding out of state attendance. We do have a page for the most expensive schools that might put the price tag at Drexel University into perspective. Additionally, you could care to know that non-profit management is the 272nd most expensive degree in America, with an average expense of $25,900. On a broader scale, the most costly state for non-profit management in the country is Pennsylvania with costs at the primary institution, Drexel University, of $52,146. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for non-profit management is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Marymount Manhattan College with a cost of $33,980, and Drexel University with a cost of $52,146.

Our cheapest region for non-profit management is the Southwest region which is represented by Wiley College with a cost of $10,118 and Arizona State University-Downtown Phoenix with a cost of $28,800. More optimistically, the most affordable university for non-profit management is Bellevue University. Our full list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying about $9,700 for a degree in non-profit management. The price grows by a lot to an average of $24,900 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the university representing the best value for non-profit management: Drexel University. Through this link you can see our comprehensive list of the colleges we believe to be the best value overall. Do know, this section is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for non-profit management majors can cover a wide range, but within two-years of leaving college students will often earn in the neighborhood of $59,900. There is much variation in earnings; top earners can enjoy pay up to $105,800. Straight out of school, the lowest end positions within the non-profit management field earn $34,100, which isn't that bad. The highest earning graduates from non-profit management studied at Drexel University and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of non-profit management ranks on the higher end, coming within the 51st percentile of all programs. The university with the highest composite diversity for non-profit management is Bellevue University and here you can find our general list of the colleges with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Non-Profit Management only ranks in the 81st percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 49th percentile. White students compose the largest share, 62%, of those studying non-profit management. Additionally, 73% of undergraduates seeking a non-profit management major are women.

The median ranking for non-profit management professors is 4.1 stars, a score which is 2% above the median score across every major; this is a good ranking. If you want to find the most popular non-profit management professor nationally, consider looking up Alex Bielajew at University of Michigan-Flint. This may be shocking, but the best rated non-profit management instructors according to students are found at University of Michigan-Flint. If we incorporate data beyond simply rankings we find that the college possessing the best professors for non-profit management is Drexel University. One will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the best professors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for non-profit management is University of Central Florida. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a general page for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we hope you understand that approaching college with context only informed by superlatives could cause issues. We at Authority hope you look at some of our more focused pages on different schools and explore some of our background pages on essential things to think about as your university search continues.
