Graduate Studies — Management

Avila offers master’s in management degrees with three areas of emphasis based on the demands of today’s business world. All three can be earned through a flexible class schedule built around eight-week, on-campus, online and weekend-intensive courses.

Management - Project Management

This degree is offered in formats that fit your learning style. Choose between: on-campus, hybrid or our online degree options.

Management - Fundraising

Avila’s program emphasis in fundraising lets you learn the science behind successful fundraising in our innovative, research- and knowledge-based program. Our unique curriculum is part of a partnership with Hartsook Companies Inc., experts in fundraising consulting, along with world-renowned expert Adrian Sargeant, a visiting professor at Avila.
