Birmingham-Southern College's graduate business program reaches out to employees of nonprofit agencies, offers limited-time discounted tuition

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Birmingham-Southern College Master of Arts in Public and Private Management program is now offering a 50 percent tuition discount to all qualified, full-time employees of nonprofit agencies with a 501c3 designation. The discount is available only to those students admitted during a three-year trial period beginning this fall. The new recruitment policy reflects the program's commitment to the nonprofit sector, as well as its interest in enrolling students from diverse work backgrounds.

In an effort to provide additional information about the program, including the discounted tuition policy for those who work in the nonprofit sector, the Nonprofit Resource Center of Alabama will host a Lunch & Learn on August 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its headquarters in Birmingham. The luncheon will feature Karen Rolen of the Community Foundation who is an alumna of the BSC MPPM program, and Dr. Stephen Craft, chair of the BSC department of business and accounting. For more information or to RSVP, contact the Nonprofit Resource Center of Alabama at 205-879-4712.

The MPPM program, a hybrid of an MBA and MPA targeted at an executive audience, was developed to maximize learning about organizational leadership and management among professionals in the private, public and healthcare sectors.
