Strategic Leadership in the Nonprofit Sector
PASS / NO CREDIT
Yes (may vary by section)
Nonprofit and Non-Governmental organizations strive to meet the most complex challenges of our time. Today, the sector is being profoundly impacted by the challenges of COVID 19, a global economic recession, as well as growing calls for diversity, equity and inclusion in the US and beyond. Leaders must use all of the management and leadership tools available to them to create strong vision and strategy, partner with volunteer directors, oversee diverse financial streams, and focus on growth and innovation to effectively create social impact in the short term and into the future. Kellogg graduates will find themselves engaged in the social impact sector in a variety of ways -- senior professional staff members, board members, volunteers and donors. This course will help students better understand the skills and talents that are necessary to effectively lead nonprofits or NGOs regardless of their role. This course will engage students in case discussion and group dialogue, along with conversations with alumni and seasoned practitioners in the social impact space. Students will be exposed to theory along with practical examples of leadership and strategy all designed to illustrate successful business practices contributing to increased social impact and steps towards solutions of global issues. Designed for students with some level of experience in the nonprofit sector, this experiential course will enable future founders, CEOs/C-suite leaders and board members to better understand and practice the leadership skills necessary to make an impact in the nonprofit/NGO world.
