Nonprofit management education has grown exponentially worldwide. In Taiwan, in response to the rapid growth of the nonprofit sector, universities are increasingly offering nonprofit courses and programs that train students interested in this area to gain relevant occupational capabilities. We asked the following questions. 1) Which nonprofit courses and programs are offered in Taiwan?, 2) What are the characteristics of nonprofit management education in Taiwan?, and 3) Where are the identified nonprofit courses and programs situated? To explore the nonprofit courses and programs provided by higher education institutions in Taiwan, we in turn built the first database of nonprofit courses and programs offered in Taiwan. We discovered 681 courses offered at 104 universities and 38 nonprofit management-related programs offered at 26 universities from 2018 to 2019.
