This experiential course enables future founders, C-suite leaders, and board members to better understand and practice the leadership skills necessary to make an impact through nonprofits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Nonprofits/NGOs strive to meet the most complex challenges of our time. Today, the sector is being profoundly impacted by labor market demands, migrant crises arising from global conflicts, fears of economic recession, and continued calls for diversity, equity and inclusion. Nonprofit/NGO leaders must use all of the management and leadership tools available to them to create strong vision and strategy, partner with a complex network of stakeholders, oversee diverse financial streams, and focus on growth and innovation to effectively achieve the impact they seek. Kellogg graduates will find themselves engaged in the social sector in a variety of ways -- as senior staff members, board members, volunteers and donors. This course helps students better understand the skills required to effectively lead nonprofits/NGOs regardless of their role. Students will engage in case discussions, meet seasoned social impact practitioners, and work in small groups to tackle real-world challenges. The course will cover theory along with practical examples of leadership and strategy, all designed to illustrate how successful business practices contribute to increased social impact.
