This course aims to produce graduates with professional competence in the specialist area of not-for-profit and social enterprise management. In addition, high-level general management competencies needed to develop or manage complex organisations involved in the production of social good are developed. The course has a strong focus on professional practice, including two innovative capstone subjects – Industry Research Capstone or Internship Experience Capstone – which allow you to work either on or with contemporary industry issues and opportunities. The additional elective subject choices provide an opportunity to specialise more deeply in the not-for-profit and social enterprise fields and further enhance students' management skills, professional practice, specialist knowledge and capabilities.
The course provides theories, models and practical case studies in order to understand the complex nature of not-for-profit organisations including grant writing, fundraising, volunteer management, advocacy, and the skills to measure social impact. Students also develop an understanding of the social economy and its economic and political context, and are introduced to ways of thinking systematically about the challenges facing society while developing innovative solutions to address these challenges.
Career options include managing non-government or not-for-profit organisations, working in the field of corporate social responsibility, or in government, particularly in roles that work with community or not-for-profit organisations in areas such as social and community welfare, environment advocacy, arts and culture, fundraising, education, international aid and development, professional associations and unions.
