Put your passion for change to work.
Milano’s groundbreaking Nonprofit Management program was the first of its kind in this country. From the beginning, our highly engaged curriculum has resonated with innovative thinkers familiar with The New School’s deep commitment to advancing progressive change and social justice. Our students develop their critical thinking skills and engage with real-world nonprofit challenges and social entrepreneurial experiences. We prepare you to challenge assumptions and develop new perspectives for leading and managing nonprofits in this increasingly complex environment. The result is a unique program designed to give you the capacity and creative courage to generate, manage, and sustain nonprofit success.
Our highly flexible program allows you to take state-of-the-art management courses in our Organizational Change Management program and innovation courses at Parsons, receive your master's and specialty certification simultaneously, and tailor your electives to reflect a wide variety of interests, from environmental justice to food studies.
This program is a hub for university social innovation initiatives highlighted by our New Challenge student competition.
This global city provides you with a wealth and diversity of possibilities across government organizations, start-ups, and international NGOs. You will discover a range of research and learning opportunities that can enrich your professional and academic portfolios.
Our students are known for going out into the world and stirring things up. They know what leadership and vision look like. They bring big, sleepy nonprofits back to life and push innovative, thriving companies to be their best. Their impact is being felt at organizations including Harlem’s Children’s Zone, The New Teacher Project, Jump Start, Fund for Public Schools, Planned Parenthood, and the Girls Incorporated Partners in Health.
