Managing and leading an NGO is becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated. A widening range of knowledge, skills and strategies are necessary to achieve results, enhance impact and remain effective.
The focus of our training courses is on gaining a thorough understanding of key concepts of NGO management, sharpening practical skills and developing strategies that you can immediately use in your work. We address real-life problems in a participatory and interactive learning environment to help you enhancing your management capacity. Participating in our courses helps you to move forward in your job and career.
Our trainings are compact, cost-effective and cover essential themes permitting participants to constantly evaluate their own stakes and find solutions for particular issues they are facing in their daily work. Through an action-learning approach our expert trainers also share their own extensive field experience. We believe that by offering targeted training to groups of diverse participants we can facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences between dedicated individuals. We offer courses in Geneva and in a number of countries.
The NGO Management School assists your organisation in management capacity building and in strengthening organisational efficiency. We provide managers and leaders with what is needed to achieve their organisation’s objectives and to look beyond to contribute actively in developing new approaches for the communities they serve.
Executive Certificate Programmes
Education should be accessible to all and it is for this reason the NGO Management School Switzerland has developed certificate programmes that do not require any prerequisite in terms of formal qualifications. Certificate programmes are modular-based, thus allowing participants to either complete the whole programme over several months to attain the Executive Certificate, or to select individual modules offering specific knowledge or skills. We currently offer two programmes, the Executive Certificate in NGO Management and the Executive Certificate in Humanitarian Action.
Post-Graduate Certificate of Advanced Studies
The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Strategic Development and Management of Humanitarian Action is designed for post-graduate students and is run in partnership with the Geneva Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action (CERAH) in Geneva, Switzerland. This seven week CAS is modular and open to post-graduates of any age or professional background. The CAS is part of the Masters of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Humanitarian Action, Geneva’s flagship programme for humanitarian education.
