MNCL 604: Financial Oversight for Nonprofit and Civic Organizations

3 credit hours

Most nonprofit organizations are small operations and don’t have the luxury of employing a CFO or a financial expert. For that reason, Executive Directors must have the knowledge to oversee the organization’s financial component. This course provides a foundation for accounting and effective financial management. Students will learn to manage an organization’s fiscal resources by focusing on policies, controls, statements, budgeting and reporting. Students will learn from hands-on exercises, real world case studies, and guest lecturers with industry experience.
