Seminar: Management and Outcomes of Nonprofit Organizations

Course Description

Nonprofit Organizations (NPOs) play an important role in western economies, both with respect to generated BIP and share of employees. This course will address different topics related to the management of NPOs, such as human resource management practices applied in NPOs and their relation to outcomes such as job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and employer attractiveness. 


As part of the course students will come up with their own research question within an assigned topic area, and will write a seminar paper (15 pages, 70% of the grade) answering this research question based on available literature. Students will present their findings twice in front of all other participants: once at an interim stage (presentation is not graded) and once at the end (20% of grade). Contribution to the discussion of fellow students’ presentation will be part of the course grade (10%).


Please note that the seminar is already fully booked, including a waiting list.
