What is Nonprofit Administration

The independent, nonprofit sector is a force for good, providing essential human services beyond the public and private sectors. It constitutes 14% of national employment and 15% of California's GDP.

From hospitals, universities, and foundations to social services, associations, and social enterprises, there are many career paths to choose from within the field. MNA alumni have become founders, directors, executives and presidents, serving a variety of communities worldwide.
