JMU Outreach and Engagement Programs: International NGO Management - Graduate Certificate
JMU Outreach and Engagement
This innovative and intensive program offers students the opportunity to examine how international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are affected by changes in their operating context. Students will become more familiar with the distinctive features of these organizations, their managerial challenges, their economic dynamics, their social and political environments, and the values they seek to realize. An intensive summer curriculum engages students via a case-based pedagogy that requires them to apply various principles central to the management of international NGOs. Over the course of the program, students will conduct several different projects related to the varied phases of a particular international NGO's operations.
