Nonprofit Management Certification and Training

Traditional nonprofit management approaches emphasize efficiency and even austerity but do not account for nonprofits that are fragile and unprepared for crises. Crises are the new normal, and nonprofits need a new way of managing.  They can be for:

  • Economic recessions
  • Pandemics
  • Social unrest
  • Sudden political change
  • Environmental catastrophes
  • Organizational scandals
  • Combinations of the above

We may not even be able to imagine what may be next. What is really needed is resilience.

Baldwin Wallace’s Nonprofit Management Certificate program provides professionals with a focused set of courses designed to develop their skill set in a short amount of time so they can apply it in real-world situations. The three modules that comprise the knowledge of the program focus on a new approach to the dilemmas of nonprofit institutional life.
