Program Information Ph.D. Minor in Nonprofit Management
Students in a Ph.D. program at Indiana University may select nonprofit management as an outside minor.

Students pursuing the minor in nonprofit management are able to develop and address research agendas incorporating questions related to nonprofit organization and their management.
