The graduate program at the Asia-Pacific Centre for Philanthropy and Social Investment (Swinburne University) in Philanthropy and Social Investment has been re-accredited, and will be offered in 2009 as a Master of Business (Philanthropy and Social Investment). As before it will be a three year, part-time course of study, with students progressing through Certificate and Diploma stages.
The Program’s main aim is to introduce students to a range of grant making and fundraising perspectives and to assist them in a critical analysis of the social enterprises within which these activities are practiced. In addition the Program aims to explore the ethical and political contexts within which social enterprises operate. The new program is a continuing response to the powerful forces which are leading to a global renaissance in philanthropy and social investment.
While substantially the same as the previous course, the new Masters will be broader in scope, taking in fundraising and social entrepreneurship, and will allow students more choice of units in accordance with their interests and career paths.
