This course is designed as an introduction to concepts of management in the context of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and international development. The course presents four clusters of management theories and explores their use for the management of NGOs and accomplishing development goals. The course involves intensive reading and discussion of relevant texts in management, development studies, and NGO management. In doing so the course focuses on these core questions: what does management theory offer for international development? what can an understanding of management knowledge offer in terms of development-related goals (such as poverty reduction,service delivery, empowerment)? What are possibilities for organizational improvement? The course will be of relevance for students interested in non-profit organizations, international development, social entrepreneurship, and innovative management.
