In this course, students explore the role of finance in public and nonprofit organizations and the theories underlying major fiscal policy debates. They examine governmental and nonprofit budgeting policies and practices, and they explore the fiscal climate within which these organizations have to operate. They also assess and discuss a variety of topics, such as issues related to budgeting and planning, generating revenue, controlling expenditures, and serving different constituencies. Students engage in practical exercises, learning how to construct budgets and capital improvement plans, as well as how to generate funds successfully to support nonprofit sector organizations.
