Nonprofit Management

Program Modules


Brescia’s new degree in Nonprofit Management combines courses in Leadership, Community Development, Nonprofit and General Management to prepare students to make a difference in society, lead organizations, and make recommendations for positive change.

The field of nonprofit organizations and charities in Canada is growing quickly and already represents 11 per cent of the working population. More than two million people are employed by the 170,000 nonprofit organizations and charities in Canada.

The program will enable you to develop leadership capabilities and management skills through experiences both in and outside of the classroom. We believe that there is no other undergraduate program in Canada that will better prepare you for careers in this field.

You will benefit from Brescia’s small class sizes and supportive environment and have the chance to experience field studies, simulations, case studies, exercises, live problems, and lectures on a variety of interesting topics.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in both a Community Development and a Leadership practicum where they will work directly with staff and leaders in community, nonprofit and other organizations. In addition, students will have the option to apply to the Management and Organizational Studies Internship Program, during which they would experience a paid work assignment of between 8 and 16 months length between third and fourth year.
