Our curriculum focuses on real-world application and achieves this through expertly designed learning experiences. Hands-on exercises and interactivity are at the heart of every Blackbaud University class, and classes are designed to support a variety of user roles.

Courses that Support Microsoft Products

Blackbaud University is built to expand the knowledge of nonprofit employees through our industry experience. In order to extend our software training reach, we’ve developed a curriculum designed around the Microsoft Excel and Word products that nonprofits utilize most.

In these courses, you learn how to get the most out of your nonprofit data in combination with your Microsoft products. These courses will explore analysis methods, data visualization options, and help you save time with impactful little-known features and tools.
