University of Lethbridge students Visit CIES

Not for profit organizations play a vital role in Canadian society yet, in comparison to the for profit sector, are not studied to a large degree in many business schools. Three students from U of L visited or SE location this week as a part of a course entitled "Managing Not-for-Profit Organizations" in order to conduct research for their project. This course provides students with an introduction to current information relating to the major management issues that not for profit organizations confront in their pursuit to be both effective and caring organizations.

Course objectives include: 

a) to introduce students to the key management issues facing not for profit organizations, and to develop skills to effectively manage these issues
b) to contrast the foundation and application of management concepts between the for profit and not for profit sectors
c) to gain an appreciation for the work of not for profit organizations, as well as the contribution these organizations make to society

Whether through voluntarism or research, CIES is actively connected with the student community and is always happy to help those looking to grow and learn about the international community in Calgary, education and the non-profit industry. Pictured below, from left to right, are Victoria Lam, Omeed Ahadi and Swetha Laguduva. If you are interested to learn more about the U of L course our guests are currently enrolled in, you can download a copy of their course outline here. Glad to help guys and come back any time. Best of luck with finals!
