The Public and Nonprofit Management program prepares, connects, and inspires future leaders to work across all sectors of the economy for the benefit of our society.

The Carlson Advantage

The Carlson School's partnership with the top-ranked Humphrey School of Public Affairs creates unique opportunities for students to discover how to apply best management practices within the contexts of both government and nonprofit settings. Additionally, the School's relationships with civic and nonprofit leaders provide opportunities for our students to engage in the broader, global community.

Students pursuing this major take a blend of classes from both the Carlson School and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. As a result, out students are not only equipped to work directly for governments and nonprofits, but also to excel within a private enterprise setting where cross-sector relationships - both domestically and in emerging markets - are becoming increasingly important.
