Masters in Non-Government Organizations Management


As the development discourse continues to bend towards developing skills and tools to strengthen society, the well governed NGOs are said to be playing this budding role. While those that are perceived as mismanaged and ill-governed institutions, are constantly being decried to have endemically remained repugnant to public as well as socio-economic development - globally and locally. Therefore, NGOs knowledge and skills capacity needs scaling for better performance at various levels of society. This, in part, is the destiny of the proposed post graduate programme. Thus, the suggested Master programme in NGO Management (MNGOM) shall strive to provide approved participants with the knowledge, skills and values (mindset and skills) indispensable with successful NGO career development and sustainability in the local and international arena. Both theoretical knowledge and “hands-on” practical experiences leadership, administration, management and governance of NGO, among others, shall be preferred. Of necessity, therefore, the programme will cover a wide range of topics to realise the intended purpose and objectives. Emphasis shall be laid mainly onto integrated management of resources (human, physical and financial) which is increasingly becoming significantly topical. It is believed that this will augment the viability and sustainability of NGOs as they will subsequently become more relevant to the envisioned goals and missions.
