Mar 28, 2018 - 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.


Mayflower Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20036

The increasingly sophisticated nonprofit sector now demands its professionals to have management skills tailored to the unique needs of this mission-based sector. The M.S. in Nonprofit Management at Columbia University is your portal to mastering cutting-edge applications of management skills to this particular sector, as well as exploring current issues in policy, law, digital strategies, and risk management. For maximum flexibility, the program offers three course formats: on campus; online, through Columbia’s distance-learning platform; and a hybrid format that combines on-campus and online instruction.

During this information session, the program’s Academic Director, Cindy M. Lott, Esq., and several of the program’s Washington, D.C.-based faculty will outline the curriculum and experience. There will be opportunities for you to get your questions answered about the program, including the application and enrollment process.

Space is limited; please RSVP by March 26, 2018. For questions, please contact Advisor Michele M. Trizzino at mt3163@columbia.edu.
