BMS001: Introduction to NGO Management

By Prof Neeti Agrawal & Prof Nayantara Padhi   |   Indira Gandhi National Open University
Learners enrolled: 1465
Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) play an important role in various developmental issues across the states in India. As of now there are 3.2 million registered NGOs operating in India. In view of the increasingly important role of the voluntary sector in the developmental process, all levels of policy making have stressed the importance of building its capacity to face the developmental challenge.

The emphasis of the management education process hitherto, had been limited to the private sector and or large public sector undertakings. The capacity building efforts for the voluntary sector have remained limited to organizing workshops and training programmes. A formal course work in this sector needs to be included in higher education. However, given the size of the sector, and if we add to this the many socially spirited individuals involved in social activism, the capacity building needs of the sector can only be catered to by undertaking education programmes. This course therefore provides a formal platform to volunteers and community workers in the field of community service to understand the nuances of Management at different levels.
