Having a leader who can assess and manage a constantly changing environment, as well as mobilize and direct resources effectively, is a game changer for nonprofit organizations. That's because when confident, business-savvy leadership is paired with altruistic goals, the nonprofit narrative evolves, donor relationships are solidified and social entrepreneurship thrives. Three 8-week courses - two required and one elective - provide valuable insight and instruction from some of today's most successful nonprofit leaders. You'll learn the fundamentals of nonprofit leadership and management, including leadership styles, nonprofit marketing, program evaluation, nonprofit law and more. You'll examine nonprofit governance and board management, including key legal, accounting, communication and fundraising components. And you'll specialize your program with a concentration in leading nonprofit boards or legal issues in human resource management.
