International Organizations Management
I was planned to study this course at self-pace, before the instructors team announced there will be a SoA after completion of this course.
This course is mainly talked about UN’s structure, it’s power and principle, and also talked about Fundraising and other NGOs.
As I’m currently working in an International NGO since graduation, this course gave me a whole image of how are NGOs working, and enhanced my knowledge on this aspect.
