Leading Nonprofits provides students with essential strategies and tools to conduct in-depth analysis of a non-profit’s effectiveness, financial sustainability, and policy change. The class will also address contemporary challenges related to organizational ethics, accountability, emerging legal frameworks, public policy, and politics.
