Nowhere is there an international masters level qualification in fundraising. Through our alliance with the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and the European Fundraising Association, the new International Advanced Diploma Course has a common curriculum that will be taught in Europe and North America. The course will make its U.S debut beginning in early 2014. This year-long course - designed for senior fundraising practitioners - will be taught at a Master’s Degree level. It will consist of an initial 10 weeks of individual study followed by a three-day face-to-face instruction block conducted during the AFP International Conference in San Antonio. A final 10 weeks of individual study will wrap up this advanced experiential learning experience; participants will spend approximately 600 hours in individual and group study over the life of the program
So if you want to develop your understanding of fundraising in the context of your organization and society as a whole; if you want to stretch your skills in analysis, synthesis and evaluation to the limit; if you want to understand how to represent fundraising better to your board and senior management team; if you want to understand philanthropic psychology and how to apply it, the Advanced Qualification in Fundraising could be for you.
Students will be expected to complete the 600 hours of study over a full academic year, including attending two three-day residential teaching blocks and completing seven assignments. Because of the innovative teaching methods being employed by the course faculty headed by Professors Adrian Sargeant and Jen Shang, you will be expected to engage with the course material and your fellow students in advance and between the teaching blocks.
