Learning objectives

The sector that groups not-for-profit organisations in our country is changing. The role of not-for-profit organisations in the local and national economy is now unanimously acknowledged and in fact considered a factor in social and economic development. The operation of not-for-profit organisations is governed by legislative procedures which often do not take their real needs into account. The course aims to explore in detail the specific characteristics of the operation of not-for-profit organisations, in particular aspects of governance, economic measurements, personnel management, and medium-to-long-term decision-making criteria. The course also provides an opportunity to meet the management of these institutions and to understand their variety and social richness, as well as the organisational and motivational solutions that are to be found in them.
