The purpose of this course is to study, discuss, and debate many issues of concern to managers of nonprofit organizations. Broadly speaking, these issues involve mission definition, competing internal and external demands, resource scarcity and uncertainty, governance systems, and managing strategic change. While the principal thrust of the course is on nonprofit organizations, there will be opportunities to examine areas where public, for-profit, and nonprofit organizations interact. The course is primarily, although not exclusively, a case-based course.
