Charity managers to learn from corporate mentors

Four charity managers will be shadowing people in the private sector from across the world as part of an international masters in management.

The quartet, who are all part of the HIV/Aids Alliance, a global group of organisations working to reduce the spread of the virus, will pair up with people from the private sector on the degree course and spend a week shadowing them.

The candidates have received sponsorship from the Swiss-based Harafi Foundation to complete the 18-month course, which typically costs about £30,000 per person, and involves taking short modules at management schools in Canada, Japan and India.

Sam McPherson, associate director of programmes at the HIV/Aids Alliance and one of the four people on the course, said it gave them the chance to learn from people they would never usually meet.

The other alliance members are from organisations based in Peru, India and Burkina Faso.
