Certificate in Nonprofit Management

CERTIFICATE IN NONPROFIT MANAGEMENT COURSES

Course schedule

Building Partnerships and Collaboration across Sectors

While the terms partnership and collaboration are hardly new in the nonprofit lexicon, the practice of engaging creatively across the private, public and nonprofit sectors is more important than ever for achieving organizational goals and social change. This course will explore the benefits and risks associated with partnerships and collaborations, and examine innovative models and strategies through case studies and best practices.

This is an instructor-led course delivered entirely online. It is highly interactive and requires active participation on discussion boards and completion of assigned projects. We estimate spending an average of 8 10 hours per week on each Certificate in Nonprofit Management course. For this reason, we highly recommend students participate in no more than two CNM courses at a time.

This intensive five-week course explores the following topics:

Partnerships and Collaboration across the Sectors: Drivers, Definitions and Determinants.
How Nonprofits Can Partner and Collaborate with Other Nonprofits.
Local and State Government Nonprofit Partnerships and Collaboration.
Private Sector Nonprofit Partnerships and Collaboration.
Steps to Developing Successful Partnerships and Collaboration.

Learning Objectives
What you and your organization will gain from this course:
Identify drivers that influence nonprofits to consider partnerships and collaborations.
Assess whether a partnership opportunity is appropriate for your organization.
Explore characteristics of effective collaboration and steps toward achieving it.

Understand the purpose and benefits of government-nonprofit partnerships and collaboration through analysis of case studies.

This is an instructor-led course delivered entirely online. It is highly interactive and requires active participation on discussions boards and completion of assigned projects. There are no real-time class meetings. Students work at times that are convenient for them within the weekly schedule of activities. We estimate spending an average of 8 10 hours per week on each Certificate in Nonprofit Management course. For this reason, we highly recommend students participate in no more than two CNM courses at a time.
