About Us

Better Leaders. Better Organizations. Better Communities. Seattle University's Executive Master of Nonprofit Leadership (MNPL) program is the first executive program in the country designed specifically for those who lead or aspire to lead nonprofit organizations. As an executive degree, the MNPL program offers opportunities to network with and learn from experienced peers while also working with a distinguished mix of instructors drawn from Seattle University faculty, practitioners, and training professionals. A Program Designed for Working Professionals: The MNPL program is oriented toward working professionals who currently are nonprofit executives or who expect to be in such positions within three years of completing the program. Students will be selected from: • Those already employed in nonprofit and philanthropic organizations who have at least two years in middle to upper management; • Those with comparable experience in business, government and the professionals who wish to prepare for a career shift to the nonprofit sector; • Individuals with eight years of experience in leadership positions on nonprofit boards who now desire employment as a nonprofit executive; • Professionals selling services to the nonprofit sector. MNPL Offers: • Opportunities to learn from peers and to develop superior professional networks • Faculty with practical experience in nonprofit management • Personal mentoring by a diverse group of nonprofit leaders • Opportunities to meet with a wide variety of the region's nonprofit and grantmaking leaders • Access to career support services The MNPL program is proud that more than 86 percent of its graduates are now nonprofit or philanthropic executives in the Pacific Northwest. Others have moved into new leadership roles on boards while continuing employment in business, government or the professions. The average graduate has seen a 21 percent increase in salary within one year of graduation. Visit us and learn more Join us for an information session.
