About the course
This new, unique and bespoke programme, developed with the Centre for Strategic Philanthropy, caters specifically to the practical needs of sector professionals and sectoral trends. These include not only the growth in capital coming to market but also the increasingly hybrid nature of the sector, the demand for greater transparency and accountability, greater scrutiny around impact and calls for more efficiency through collaboration and partnerships. The programme is comprised of video lectures, discussions, live online teaching sessions and assignments.
It will explore how philanthropic capital can best be deployed to deliver impact and long-term system change. It will address many of the challenges and opportunities that face emerging market philanthropists – notably given the growing intergenerational wealth transfers – in trying to align their work with national development plans, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the need to deliver sustainable outcomes at scale.
