“A trend of self-sustainable model in non-profit organizations has already started challenging the donor dependent mentality,” says the college in a press release issued Friday, “Therefore, in the evolving political and socio-economic context, non-profits now must adopt hard-tested theories of business management on the areas like resource optimization, finance, marketing, branding, risk management, leadership development, and social entrepreneurship.”
The course expects non-profit professionals to develop leadership and management skills required to inculcate enterprising mindset and to sustain the mission-based initiatives.
With nine core courses including, Organizational Leadership, Organizational Behavior, Marketing Management, Managerial Economics, Managing Information Systems and Technology, Managerial Accounting, Financial Management, Strategic Management in a Globalized Economy and Applied Methods Capstone, MBA Non-Profit Management aims at preparing students with key skills in community engagement, fundraising, and governance.
Likewise, MBA Agribusiness aims at developing human resources to transform the country’s traditional sustenance based agriculture into high-growth businesses through innovation and entrepreneurship.
The MBA Agribusiness mainly targets the students from agriculture, forestry and similar academic sector. “The course will be beneficial for individuals wanting to start business in agricultural sector orthose aspiring to take their agribusiness to the newer heights.”
