Voluntary Sector Management

This course is designed as a complete development programme for managers in charities and not-for-profit organisations. The programme was carefully and expertly developed in partnership with nine leading charities.

The Voluntary Sector Management course is intended for highly motivated graduate-level staff with three or more years of management experience. It delivers immediate management benefits to the charity organisation while providing valuable personal career development for the individual.

Significantly subsidised and therefore excellent value for money, the programme delivers:
A broad understanding of the full portfolio of major charity functions, as well as deeper direct experience in two specialist areas relevant to your organisation;
Up-to-date skills and techniques to apply directly to your day-to-day work with minimal time spent away from the office;
The opportunity to network, study and share ideas, with peers from different but related backgrounds, bringing deep and immediately relevant insights to charity management; and
Recognition with a City, University of London Business School Postgraduate Diploma or MSc degree in Voluntary Sector Management.
