VISION

The best School of Management for Social Change, with the best Partners, for the best Talents, for a better World.

MISSION

We work in partnership with organizations dedicated to humanitarian aid and  sustainable development.

We discover, invest in, certificate, train and connect the most talented professionals and managers, contributing to the creation of new leaders, truly focused on a positive social impact.

WHY HOPE?

  1. Ready for the field? Social Change School and some big international NGOs gave life to HOPE in 2014 in order to address the lack of a truly international training programmes.
    2. An amazing professional didactic staff coming from the Humanitarian Sector
    3. Certifications: Sphere Standards, PMD – Project Management for Development Professionals, HRG-Hardiness Resilience Gouge. Social Change School is among the first institutions in the world to be recognized as HPass Learning Provider.
    4. Full employment: 90% of employment in the Non Profit by the end of the Master; 50% after 6 months (Official data: August 2016 Follow up). HOPE has the objective to respond to the need of the sector by offering concrete job prospects in the rapidly growing market of humanitarian emergencies.
    5. Internationality: HOPE is an International Programme, with European (and not only European) lecturers and students, that unites quality, accessibility (affordable cost + scholarships) and flexibility (thanks to the eLearning + workshops formula, that makes it easier to attend).
    6. Experience, History and Worldwide Network of the School: in a historical moment that sees humanitarian emergency become the new training business, the School provides its experience, contacts, relations, international community and the helpfulness of hundreds of fellows around the world.
    7. Management Development Accelerator: if you were sitting on a table to negotiate your projects with the Talibans, what would you say and how would you do it? Are you able to pitch with a Company, or present the project to a Foundation? The managerial development feature “secures” you, allowing you to have basic skills in Conflict Management, Negotiation, Stress Management, Assertiveness, Public Speaking, Time and Organization Management.
    8. Training Period On The Field: 3-6 Months reimbursed by Social Change School in Africa, Asia, or Latin America, at a field office of an organisation of the sector, within the year of Master course. A fantastic opportunity to start your career on the field. About 50% of the students who do the Training Period, continue to work in the host organisation. The amount (until 1500 euros) paid by the School is normally given directly to the NGO partners in charge of organizing and paying for travel, insurance, accommodation.
    9. Students Helpline when you are on the field, supported by Tanja Berretta and Marco Crescenzi
Be the change! Can you see the Master as a powerful lever for social change? For us and the NGOs it is. We believe that your professional commitment is fundamental to enhance the quality of NGOs. We believe that you, with your passion and professionalism, can be the change for the lives of thousands of people. We do not consider you as a student, but as a social activist, a rights’ defender, a person interested not only in “doing projects” but in changing systems: a heavily committed “social” professional.
 
Do you find yourself in this description? Do you feel you can have the right potential to be the change? Book the admission and evaluation interview with Marco Crescenzi or one of our advisers, who directly take care of the selection and admission process for your benefit (for a right choice), the NGOs’ (on your human and professional quality) and of course for the good name of the School – represented by each of its fellows, all over the world.

Do you want to know your professional potential and your career development? Do you want to understand how to build your future on the  strengths and the weaknesses to work on? What will your professional profile be and what markets will it have? We will do it together through a 360-degrees evaluation with Marco Crescenzi, President of the School (and Psychotherapist), or another professional of the sector and member of the School’s staff.

At the end of the interview you will have articulated and complete feedback with a clear evaluation of your professional potential, and some targeted advice for your next steps.

I believe these interviews are one of the best things about my professional experience. Since 1997, I have interviewed thousands of people, and hundreds of fantastic human beings have been launched professionally. Now, they are professionals and sector managers. The interview is very thorough because it serves to protect the candidate from imprudent choices, but also to guarantee the School and the Organizations on the highest quality of the admitted students (Marco Crescenzi).
