I really enjoyed my course at the NGO Management School. The small group and the experienced trainer really allowed for discussions and personal attention. I also highly appreciated the willingness of the trainer to offer assistance outside the course. The location was ideal and in general all logistical aspects were excellent. A huge thank you to the warm and friendly staff - you made me feel very welcome!

As a non-NGO professional, I found the course Essentials of NGO Management very useful and professional. The different speakers were very engaging and truly knowledged in their sphere. I also really enjoyed the group and everyone's life experience which brought the discussions to life.

Both trainings attended were very practical which helped me a lot in my professional life. The trainers were very experienced and skilled. The added value is that we had like an individual training where every participant could develop their own project evaluation and fundraising strategy on which we got expert feedback. Most of all, I liked the professional conduct of the staff and their warm attitude and excellent administrative and logistic support.
My experience with the NGO Management School introduced me to a different professional environment that that expanded my knowledge and my opportunities in the non-profit world. The trainers had the ability to explain things in a simple way without taking the importance from a topic. I totally recommend NMS' Essentials of NGO Management course to everyone who wants to enter the NGO sector.
Very nice and interactive learning from the course. It offered the great opportunity to learn from and share expertise with people from around the globe, and from the very experienced trainer. The NGO Management School is doing best efforts and the training is most useful.
Laura Fernandez Diaz - Junior Project Coordinator, Governance and Membership International AIDS Society, Switzerland
Essentials of NGO Management is a ‘crash course’ on everything that it is important around international development and NGO management. We had a great variety of trainers and all the practical information that is so important when we want to apply the knowledge acquired into our current jobs in the NGO sector. The staff at NGO Management School were absolutely great. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and highly recommend it.
I consider expertise and learning environment as key components of training and I was pleasantly surprised by the level of compliance to best practices in the regard. The modules were considerably relevant to my function as M&E Manager - the training contents and facilitation techniques were simply awesome, with a good mix between theory and practice. All this makes me recommend the NGO Management School as first choice training provider.

Excellent course! It was both useful and fun to meet knowledgeable trainers with lots of practical experience, spend time with other people working in NGOs from around the world, learn together with them and exchange ideas. I can’t wait to put everything I learned in practice and continue my career in the NGO sector with confidence and great enthusiasm!

A comprehensive, well-structured and highly interactive HR training by an excellent, well-experienced and competent trainer conducted in a great training facility. Logistical support from the NGO Management School was superb too. Indeed, a priceless learning experience worth the long travel from Manila to Geneva.
Thank you for organising the Essentials of Human Resource Management training. It was one of the best trainings I have ever attended. The trainer was excellent, and I got the opportunity to learn about HR practices from around the world since each participant was from a different country. It was a really fulfilling and fun week for me. I highly recommend this course to all NGOs.

“For the past six weeks, I have repeatedly sought the cooperation of the Government of Israel to facilitate access to the occupied Palestinian territory for me to undertake this visit. Regrettably, I did not receive the necessary support, including a visa by the Government of Israel, ahead of my travel, which is scheduled for tomorrow,” the expert says.
“I remain interested in visiting the occupied Palestinian territory, and call on the Government of Israel, as the occupying power, to facilitate access to the territory,” she concludes.
