Abstract: This article examines the nature of social work administration, including the core concepts, context and content as well as the ways it differs from business administration. Findings: The challenges faced by not-for-profit human service organizations in the changing world also were identified. The authors advocated that commercial values and social values should not be confused. Social work is profoundly influenced by the values of our society. Social work administrators must recognize their work is motivated and shaped by social values. Applications: Recommendations for teaching, researching, and practising social work administration are also suggested.
