You will explore the latest trends in fundraising, partnerships-building, and volunteer engagement.

You will also learn how to apply common ‘for-profit’ business practices that are adapted and applied to a non-profit organization. Drawing on local, national and international cases, you will be exposed to the diversity of the sector and the challenges in managing large and small organizations.

Optional Work Term

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term in a formal work environment. The work term is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured.
