Non-Profit Organization Manager, Continuing Education Workforce Certificate

Like their for-profit counterparts, managers in non-profit organizations plan, direct, and control aspects of the organization's work to ensure the effective and efficient utilization of resources (including staff), so the goals of the organization can be achieved and the organization can survive and thrive.

They may assist in the organization's strategic planning, develop, monitor, and control budgets, and manage programs, staff, and other resources, as well as assist with fundraising, including grant writing, and the marketing and promotion of the overall organization and/or their unit/department.
