Deadline: June 22, 2020
Applications are invited for the Amani Institute Social Innovation Management Program 2020. The Online Certificate in Social Innovation Management is a 5-month intensive program where you will learn by doing, train with master practitioners, gain skills and build networks, all for the career you truly want, no matter where you are located.
This is not a typical online course where you just watch video lectures and comment online. This is a high-intensity interactive experience. The practical nature and the highly-personalized elements of the program mean that you join live classes, receive personalized coaching sessions, and practice your learning in a tailored way.
Through this innovative program, you will gain both systemic and granular understanding of the social impact sector, as well as build cutting-edge 21st-century skills with the help of global practitioners who are masters in the fields of Leadership, Entrepreneurship & Management, Communication, and Innovation. You will become part of an engaging global community of impact professionals while experiencing a collaborative methodology and using online tools that are going to be more and more relevant in the future of work. You will also think deeply about your own goals and motivations, align who you are with what you want to do, and create a new strategy for your career.
