International NGO program applications for 2018 are due on March 18

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 10:00 PM - 11:59 PM

JMU's Graduate Certificate program in the Management of International Non-Governmental Organizations prepares students for careers in the international nonprofit sector.

Students will become more familiar with the distinctive features of these organizations, their managerial challenges, their economic dynamics, their social and political environments, and the values they seek to realize. An intensive summer curriculum engages students via a case-based pedagogy that requires them to apply various principles central to the management of international NGOs. Over the course of the program, students will conduct several different projects related to the varied phases of a particular international NGO's operations.

This focused program delivers most of its instruction online during JMU’s graduate summer session (from mid-May through late July) and includes a capstone study-abroad experience in July. Three of the four courses are taught online: Management in International NGOs, The International Non-Profit Sector, and Ethics and INGOs. Students may complete these three courses from any location with internet access. Students will complete the fourth course, The Politics of INGO Management, via a mixture of online learning and a field experience in Vietnam that will be held from July 15th to July 22nd, 2018.

Applications received will be reviewed on a rolling basis, space permitting, until March 18th, 2018
