New Master’s in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership

Offered by Carleton University’s School of Public Policy and Administration, the Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership prepares graduates to be innovators and leaders in charities, nonprofits, advocacy organizations, social enterprises, philanthropic foundations, development offices, and in the governments, financial institutions and businesses that interact with them. The MPNL explicitly integrates knowledge of:

  • philanthropy – the use of private resources, both time and money, for public benefit;
  • organizational leadership of charities, nonprofits and social enterprises, and;
  • public policy for philanthropy and the charitable/nonprofit sector.

As a national program, it is designed to be accessible to qualified students from across Canada (and internationally) and to both full-time students and working professionals who wish to study part-time.

The first cohort begins in August 2013.
