Do you want to use advanced business skills and your professional attributes to benefit the wider community? Even charities have to adopt effective organisational structures and balance the books. They too, need leadership.
This customised MBA programme by Concordia University Chicago (CUC) takes MBA-level disciplines out of the boardroom and into the social sphere. You will learn how to apply core business skills to not-for-profit initiatives, including social, environmental and community-based projects.
Your online MBA course will be delivered by CUC&rsquo,s experienced faculty members. You will begin with an enlightening review of business fundamentals such as management, marketing, finance and strategy. This background will provide you with a solid foundation on which to build the specific skills required in the not-for-profit sector such as fund development, arts and community project development, and social services &ndash, all of which are examined during the concentration phase of the programme.
Your MBA course will conclude with the Capstone Experience, where you will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge you have learned to real-world scenarios.
