The framework of the programme is built around three areas that are fundamental to non-profit management;
- General management knowledge and skills
- Organisation context and development
- Non-profit management domain knowledge and skills.
The programmes provide participants with different pathways and exit points to cater to different professional goals, needs and interests. Participants can exit at the graduate certificate or graduate diploma, and return to earn a higher qualification at a later time.
If the courses are taken consecutively, the programme will stretch over four semesters or two years. However, students will have flexibility in scheduling their studies and will graduate as long as they meet programme requirements within a maximum of two year candidacy.
Modular courses may also be taken individually, via the Centre for Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) and recognized for credit when applying for admission to the GDNPM and other post-graduate programmes.
