Elizabeth Hackbarth, Philanthropy and Nonprofit Development MA 2011 alum

As a young nonprofit professional, the program gives credibility to my resume and offered me an opportunity to network with other nonprofit professionals. In fact, I was introduced to my first employer post-graduation who was a guest speaker in a first semester course! I recommend this program to anyone who is looking to further their career in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Development. The curriculum is a broad overview of all aspects of the nonprofit sector, and the research paper allowed me to dive deeper into a relevant and timely topic that fit my career path and interests. Thanks to Dr. Rod Dieser’s considerate guidance, I was able to have my research reviewed and approved prior to graduation.
