Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Nonprofit organizations and nongovernmental organizations are a part of what is generally referred to as civil society. While this course is primarily an introduction to leadership, management and policymaking in nonprofit organizations, it will, however, briefly, cover nongovernmental organizations. In the main, the readings, assignments, and course materials are designed to enhance your understanding of the nonprofit sector in the U.S. and to build conceptual and practical skills needed to perform effectively in positions of significant management responsibility in nonprofit organizations/nongovernmental organizations. Students who have substantial experience in the nonprofit/nongovernmental sector will relate the course materials to their own experiences and perspectives. But students who have no prior managerial experience (or limited experience) will also find the course to be valuable and instructive.
