Nonprofit MBAs in Europe


mba hipste...
Anybody know of any b-schools in Europe that have good nonprofit management programs? I'm not necessarily looking for something with a specialization, but something that might have some relevant curriculum and good connections to the nonprofit world. Would HEC Genève, Copenhagen Business School, or Amsterdam Business School be any good in this space?

You're more likely to find that with an MPM or MPA. But also look at http://www.find-mba.com/board/8843 and http://www.find-mba.com/board/27803

But aren't these not very common in mainland Europe? I really would like to go to a school that has connections and networking opportunities - like a good business school - and I'm finding that many MPMs and MPAs are offered by schools of public administration or social sciences departments (like RSM's program, for instance.)

They are more common than MBAs with non-profit management concentrations. I think the network from Science Po, the new Oxford MPA, the Hertie School, SIAS Bologna, the College of Europe etc will be just as strong as that from an MBA of similar standing.

I can only think of Manchester, Warwick, SDA Bocconi and Maastricht as top-flight business schools with courses that might fit...

since I would imagine that most non-profits don't habitually recruit mbas, maybe you should look at a combination of brand name and a fair number of electives/events/etc. but a full-fledged non-profit mba concentration might limit you moving forward. maybe Oxford or Cambridge or the others that Duncan mentioned.

There's a Geneva-Bocconi double degree option. Perhaps that's a good bet? But I think these networks are rather national.
