The Harvard Club of Australia (HCA), in partnership with the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF), is pleased to once again support not-for-profit leaders with an opportunity to study at Harvard Business School in the United States.

The Nonprofit Fellowships

In recognition of the strong social and economic significance of the non-profit sector to the Australian community, the Harvard Club of Australia is offering two Fellowships to attend the highly regarded six-day course Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM)in July 2020 at the Harvard Business School.

Now in its 20th year, the Harvard Club of Australia Nonprofit Fellowships help fulfil the increasing demand for managerial skills and strategic decision-making within the not-for-profit sector. The course will assist participants to examine their missions, develop new strategies and improve the effectiveness of their organisations.

About the Course:

Today’s NFP organisations are faced with shifting demands for services, mounting financial pressures, and diverse operational challenges. To fulfil their missions, nonprofit leaders must step up their game and create organisations that can thrive in the midst of change. Exploring crucial concepts and skills for nonprofit leadership in uncertain times, this program will prepare you to strengthen fiscal management and accountability while leading the evolution needed to create an effective, high-performing organisation.

The Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management program delivers the strategic perspectives, leadership skills, and practical tools you need to drive change across the organisation. You will leave fully prepared to take decisive action and create a more responsive, successful, and sustainable not-for-profit organisation.
