Rhodes-Inyathelo Advancement Certificate

This course offers a remarkable opportunity to be brought up-to-date with principles – and to apply them … while thinking deeply about and evaluating what this means for one’s day-to-day work or current projects / plans.
~ Sharon Ries, CoZa Cares Foundation, Marketing

Inyathelo has formed a partnership with Rhodes Business School to develop a postgraduate diploma qualification in Advancement. When complete, it will be Africa’s first ever university-level course in Advancement. As part of the development of this diploma, Rhodes and Inyathelo have offered a short university-accredited certificate course in Advancement over the past few years.  

The certificate course seeks to drive a fundamental shift in thinking around organisational and institutional mission, objectives and delivery - and how to attract the donor resources in support of this.  The course is aimed at professionals working in the field of Advancement including academics, CEOs, trustees, managers and other staff involved in fundraising, marketing, donor and project management, alumni relations, community-building, and the development and implementation of strategies to secure financial support and mobilise resources.
