Course summary

This course develops your management potential ready for the competitive challenges ahead of the Third Sector and includes a certificate awarded by the Chartered Management Institute.

Why study Charity Management?

Charities and voluntary services are often berated by the media for poor management decisions. This label is compounded by them being part of a third sector: below the private and public sectors. Smaller charities face increased competition for funds and publicity, and limited frontline resources.

This Charity Management course offers a fresh and positive outlook for the sector, recognising the vital role that charities and volunteers play in society.

You will learn contemporary management and business techniques - underpinned by ethics and responsible management practices - to help charities thrive in a competitive environment.

The programme will help develop your management potential and will equip you for any future challenges the sector faces. On completing your Master's degree, you will also gain an accredited award from the Chartered Management Institute. Students will also achieve exit awards PgDip and PgCert.

Why St Mary's?

As one of few postgraduate courses of its kind in the country, our Master's in Charity Management programme has a strong record in graduate employability and attracts international interest.

Teaching methods

You will be expected to conduct individual study, as well as attend formal scheduled weekly lectures.

We will provide you with key tools: our online portal, SIMMSpace and access to our extensive electronic resources and business databases, as well as many other research sources.

You will be welcome to attend guest lectures from our visiting professors and growing research community, who often present enlightening perspectives on issues in business, management and law.

Career opportunities

Students on the programme, both past and present, have successfully experienced promotion within the not-for-profit sector. Several alumni have become CEOs of their charities.

To ensure that students benefit from the Master's programme, it is advisable that they work (paid or unpaid) for a charitable organisation whilst on the course.

For those students not currently engaged with a non profit organisation, we have prepared a list of charities that offer voluntary positions. There are no guarantees that voluntary positions will be available.
