OUR COURSE AT A GLANCE

GSN481 Philanthropic and Nonprofit Frameworks of Governance

It locates these understandings in various theoretical and descriptive frameworks providing students with both the knowledge and analytical skills that are necessary to reflect critically on philanthropy and nonprofit governance systems and their environments.
GSN484 Management for Philanthropic and Nonprofit Organisations
In the context of the multiple management challenges facing nonprofit and philanthropic entities, this unit provides students with an introduction to contemporary thinking and practice in the effective and efficient management of organisations. While the focus is on nonprofit management, wider management and organisational theory will be drawn on in order that proactive responses to situations, problems and dilemmas facing nonprofit organisations can be developed by students.

GSN483 Ethics for Philanthropic and Nonprofit Organisations
This unit introduces students to ethical theories and constructs with a focus on producing effective personal and professional resolutions to those ethical dilemmas specifically associated with philanthropic and nonprofit organisations. The unit recognises the distinctive mission and character of these organisations, while seeking to provide an understanding of integrity and response-ability.
GSN487 Introduction to Social Enterprise
The nonprofit sector continues to mature and expand with the establishment of more sophisticated social enterprise programs. With significant reductions in the traditional sources of revenue, increasingly sophisticated competition and dramatic changes in expectations from clients and stakeholder groups, the need for effective strategy and implementation has grown. The unit offers a background to social enterprise and associated issues.
