SEM 438 - Managing Public, Not-for-Profit Organizations

3 units (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Faculty of Business

Many management ideas and practices are derived from private, for-profit organizations. This course examines some of the issues confronting management in the public, voluntary and not-for-profit sectors, for example, health, education, charities, churches, cultural organization and the arts, community groups, aid agencies, etc. It addresses the issues of to what extent and how management in these types of organizations is different from the dominant private sector view of management; the extent to which practices from one sector may be adopted by another, and pressures which lead in this direction, through, for example, funding agencies. Specific issues such as the management of volunteers will also be considered. Prerequisite: SEM 201, 301 or 310.
