Did you know that careers in the non-profit sector are almost outpacing those in the for-profit sector? According to the New York Times, the total number of non-profit organizations in the US increased by 25% between 2001 and 2011. The number of for-profit businesses only climbed by 0.5%. If you’re focused on finding a leadership position that also helps you fulfill passions for social advocacy or positively affecting change, consider the M.A. program in Non-profit Management and Leadership at Hebrew University.
In this intensive program, a joint venture of Hebrew University’s Rotherberg International School and the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare, students will be equipped with the skills to help them become successful leaders in the non-profit sector. Coursework centers on civil society and social change. Students will study social change in theory and in practice and also be required to apply their knowledge in a rigorous internship with a non-profit organization. Students can also apply to Hebrew University’s Social Change and Activism Enrichment track with Tikkun Olam or to the Experiential Leadership Training Enrichment track with the Global Leadership Institute.
Upon graduation, students will find themselves well positioned to obtain high-level jobs in non-profit organizations, as they will have acquired vast knowledge in the financial, social, and organizational aspects of management and leadership. The Hebrew University is set in dynamic and historic Jerusalem, conveniently located near the country’s most sacred landmarks and sites.
