Characteristics and purpose of postgraduate studies

The Interdisciplinary postgraduate program Management of non-governmental organisations responds to the drive to professionalise civil society organisations and establish effective relations between the third sector and public institutions. Subjects included in the course of studies concern the wide range of activities of entities indicated in the Act on Public Benefit Activities and Voluntary Service. This includes managing one’s own organisation efficiently, including using design thinking, and raising and managing funds or promoting public benefit activities to reach the widest possible audience. The program also takes into account the role of voluntary service, outsourcing public tasks or participation of citizens in public consultations.

Striving to professionalise the third sector requires its representatives to become fully familiar with applicable law, in particular regarding reporting, as well as the requirements, obligations and facilities arising from having the status of a public benefit organisation. The new major is a response to the need to professionalise civil society entities and to build lasting relations and cooperate more effectively with public administration bodies. Studies are aimed not only at people who create NGOs, but also those who are employed in the public sector and open to cooperation with the representation of civil society. An advantage of the course is the possibility of contact with practitioners from the third sector, public administration and institutions supporting the development of civil society.
