International by Design: International Accreditation Perspectives for Nonprofit Management Education

Marco Tavanti


The classification process of American nonprofit sectors is diverse and complex. The classification process at the international level is further complicated by sector hybrid organizations responding to diverse national legal systems and diverse sociopolitical contexts. In this paper, I address some of these complexities with nonprofit organizational cases from East Africa and Western Europe and nonprofit-related educational programs. I offer recommendations to incorporate this diversity into the definitions of accreditation criteria for nonprofit management education with the aim of preparing students for the 21st century.
