This course develops your management potential ready for the competitive challenges ahead of the Third Sector and includes a certificate awarded by the Chartered Management Institute.
Why study Charity Management?
Charities and voluntary services are often berated by the media for poor management decisions. This label is compounded by them being part of a third sector: below the private and public sectors. Smaller charities face increased competition for funds and publicity, and limited frontline resources.
This Charity Management course offers a fresh and positive outlook for the sector, recognising the vital role that charities and volunteers play in society.
You will learn contemporary management and business techniques – underpinned by ethics and responsible management practices – to help charities thrive in a competitive environment.
The programme will help develop your management potential and will equip you for any future challenges the sector faces. On completing your Master’s degree, you will also gain an accredited award from the Chartered Management Institute .
