This program offers professionals in leadership positions the knowledge and skills to be effective leaders in directing staff and programs as well as overall organizational management. In order to meet the continued challenges posed by changing social policies and accountability to communities, leaders need to be adept at assuming a vast array of responsibilities.
The program strengthens participants’ management skills, but the primary focus is on how to lead. Leaders require commitment, focus, ethics, and vision. This program explores all of these factors as they apply to working with staff, funders, and government agencies. Students in this course gain an understanding of the real world of not-for-profit management, including how to work with constituencies from grass-roots community organizations to members of the board.
