Change lives. Change organizations. Change the world.
This course surveys strategic, governance, and management issues facing a wide range of nonprofit organizations in an era of venture philanthropy and social entrepreneurship. It introduces students to core managerial issues in the nonprofit sector, such as development/fundraising, investment management, performance management and nonprofit finance.
The course provides an overview of the sector, including its history and economics. Cases studies will be presented from a range of nonprofits, from smaller, social entrepreneurial organizations to larger, more traditional ones in education, social service, environment, health care, religion, the performing arts, and the NGO arena. In addition to case discussions, students will participate in role playing, group exercises, and will hear from guest speakers.
This elective course is offered to all Stanford GSB and Sloan students. Current students, please check MyGSB for more information.
