Nonprofit Management as a Semi-Profession

Abstract

A central question is pursued in this paper: What knowledge can sociology offer to assess the professionalization of nonprofit management? The question is answered from fieldwork done by the authors. Using criteria developed by scholars like Flexner, Greenwood, and other current researchers, the authors argue that nonprofit management has become an identifiable profession, but its professional status and prestige remain that of a semi-profession. Participant observation of one university-based program is utilized to explore the professional status of nonprofit management.
