It is the only program for the nonprofit sector in India today that brings faculty from Harvard Business School (HBS) to India to facilitate sessions using the HBS case study methodology.
The programme curriculum focuses on planning for scale, performance measurement and improvement, and adopting a disciplined approach to strategy, governance, and operations to help emerging leaders at the forefront of the not-for-profit sector drive meaningful social change.
The Strategic Nonprofit Management—India program presents a new platform for executives to sharpen the organization’s mission and strategy, design effective operational models, raise funds, and strengthen governance and leadership. Key lessons will come into focus as the classes will be constructed according to the critical challenges of the respective organizations. Return to work will mean building a high-performance organization that can fulfill its mission, expand its scope, and achieve its potential.
