Public Management (Non-profit management focus)

The focus of this course is on nonprofit management. The course looks at key issues, challenges, and opportunities in the creation, management, and leadership of nonprofit organizations. Attention is given both to internal organizational issues and to nonprofits’ relationships with external constituencies. Among the topics considered are nonprofit creation and growth, mission management, organizational leadership, funding strategies, collaboration, and the public policy environment. Readings and discussion will examine nonprofits in varied fields of activity (such as human services, culture etc.). We will use exercises and cases to translate broad themes to practical issues related to nonprofit strategy and management. Guest speakers will periodically share their experiences building and running nonprofits.
