Non-Profit Administration

Our world needs business professionals who live lives marked by uncompromising Christlike values, dedication and compassion. At Cornerstone University, a major in non-profit administration prepares students for positions requiring business and leadership skills or graduate education.

Program Learning Outcomes

The non-profit administration program reflects our commitment to developing students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes in five distinct yet interconnected areas: specialized knowledge; applied knowledge and collaborative learning; intellectual skills; civic and global learning; and biblical worldview integration.
