In a time of shifting demands for services, changing operating environments, and mounting financial pressures, the skills of nonprofit leaders are being put to the test. Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM) is an HBS Social Enterprise Initiative program that provides the opportunity for senior executives to examine their missions and develop new strategies for the new global economy.
This Executive Education program guides nonprofit executive directors and CEOs as they explore proactive methods for mastering nonprofit leadership in uncertain times. HBS faculty and approximately 140 nonprofit leaders from around the world challenge participants to strengthen their ability to improve the effectiveness of their organizations.
Through case studies of a diverse set of nonprofits, you will gain an invaluable understanding of the core concepts crucial to nonprofit leadership. This newfound insight will enable you to develop customized strategies as well as effective implementation plans.
SPNM is designed for nonprofit executive directors and chief executive officers who are responsible for driving the organization's direction, mission, policies, and major programs. This leadership training offering is not targeted to management support organizations or consulting firms.
By integrating social enterprise-related research, teaching, and activities into daily life at HBS, the Social Enterprise Initiative plays a critical role in supporting the School's mission to educate leaders who make a difference in the world.
The Social Enterprise program fees are subsidized by Harvard Business School and its Social Enterprise Initiative. Limited, additional need-based scholarship funding may be available. Visit the HBS Social Enterprise Initiative website for scholarship information.
