Student testimonials


“I have come away from every session with a “nugget” of understanding that I will take with me as I move up the leadership ladder..... Each presenter has allowed us to see a unique and candid perspective of what Executive Leadership is from inside the corner office.”

   - Anthony Gebbia, Principal/Assistant Director for Montgomery Academy


"I was drawn to FDU's Nonprofit Executive Leadership program because of the extremely relevant topics that it was going to cover and quality of the instructors. Little did I realize the networking opportunities it would provide and the doors that it would open."

   - Jeanne M. Patrican, Consultant
