Description: Not-for-profit organizations are run far different than their for-profit counterparts. Forget profits. Mission is the driving force here. At the same time, they often possess fewer revenue streams, relying instead on goodwill to fund their efforts. As a result, they must be governed in a different fashion. In this course, students will learn the best practices for operating a non-profit. In particular, the course will focus on the following areas:

  • Unique characteristics of nonprofits
  • Leadership and governance
  • Roles of board members
  • Developing a BEAR (Board Effectiveness Readiness Assessment

The course includes video lectures and practitioner interviews, case studies and discussion forums, with students evaluated on quizzes and a class project.

Review: “Very thorough and practical. Great insights into the governance and leadership required in the nonprofit sector.” For additional reviews, click here.
