David McCurry G'08 MS in Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy

After searching for nearly three years for a formalized education pertinent to the nonprofit sector, I found Bay Path College’s Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy (NMP) Program to complement my career experience. Bay Path provided everything I sought in an online, nonprofit graduate program—courses relevant to fundraising as well as my current position as senior director of development at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA.

Since I live in California—3,000 miles from Bay Path—the online program definitely worked well for me. Throughout my NMP studies, my knowledge was strengthened in nonprofit leadership, volunteer management, and philanthropy, and various projects were immediately applicable to my supervision of Westmont’s annual fund and major gifts programs. The courses were rigorous and rich in content, and the ongoing discussion forums provided numerous opportunities to interact and learn from my peers and faculty members, who bring a wealth of nonprofit experience to the online community. They expect a lot from their students, but also give a lot of themselves.

My Bay Path graduate degree has increased my credibility with donors and peers alike, and my education has prepared me well for my future endeavors in the non-profit sector, be it fund development for a higher education institution, working for an international relief organization, or providing non-profit consultations. The nonprofit management program was more rewarding than I dreamed possible, and the college has provided me with a wonderful learning opportunity that has enriched my life.

MBA program at Bay Path College

Bay Path University's degree programs can be customized to your career goal by incorporating graduate certificates, combining degree programs, or selecting from a wide-range of electives. It's possible to earn an MBA and study fundraising...or earn an MS in Nonprofit Management and study higher education administration.  We work with you to build your program!

Most graduate degrees consist of just 12 courses, and can be combined to allow you to create your own “customized” Dual-Degree Program with just 20-22 courses. Plus, there are many graduate certificates consisting of only 4 -5 courses that can be combined with a degree program to further enhance your credentials.

Here are some of the options that you can create:

  1. MBA + MS Communications & Information Management = (20 courses; 2 year completion)
  2. MBA + Certificate in Fundraising = (15 courses; 18 month completion)
  3. MS Communications & Information Management + Certificate in Nonprofit Management =
    (15 courses; 18 month completion)
  4. MS Higher Education + MS Strategic Fundraising and Philanthropy = (20 courses; 2 year completion)
  5. MS Nonprofit Management & Philanthropy + MBA = (20 courses; 2 year completion)
  6. MS Special Education + Certificate in Higher Education = (15 courses; 2 year completion)
