Non-governmental and mission-based organizations require all the core competencies in finance, strategy, and operations that are relevant for businesses or corporations; but they also require special leadership and negotiation skills for communities and their stakeholders, as well as special resource management skills, particularly human resources. Your core requirements and their practical applications will enable you to develop these capabilities while also providing elective choices in relevant areas like development communications, or politics and policy, as well as more specialized courses such as “Women, Conflict Resolution and International Law” or “Politics and Economics of Global Media,” among many others.
