Harvard Business School Leadership Scholarships
Since 2008, Berkshire Taconic's partnership with Harvard Business School has helped provide the perspective and skills nonprofit leaders need to guide their organizations effectively.
Governing for Nonprofit Excellence (GNE)
Berkshire Taconic invites nonprofit board chairs or vice chairs in the region to apply for a scholarship to attend 'Governing for Nonprofit Excellence,' a four-day executive education program at Harvard Business School designed to enhance leadership and governance skills. Led by world-class HBS faculty with experience in board leadership and nonprofit management, this program explores the challenges today's nonprofit boards face and helps board leaders clarify their organization's mission, assess objectives and think strategically for the future.
Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM)
Harvard Business School's 'Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management' is an intensive six-day program, designed specifically for nonprofit CEOs, presidents or executive directors who are responsible for shaping the direction, mission, policies and major programs of their organizations. The program focuses on how change and shifting economic realities affect organizations, and how to understand and apply core management concepts in response to internal and external forces. Participants are able to step back from the day-to-day pressures of the workplace, examine their organization's broader priorities and at the same time, address specific challenges and questions.
