Social Entrepreneurship is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary area of interest that draws on entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to craft innovative businesses that address social needs. This course explores current trends in both the private and social sectors, which are creating space for innovation and opportunities for individuals to apply their business skills to drive positive and large scale social change. We will explore major opportunities and challenges presented by social enterprise through examining a variety of models ranging from social purpose to the creation of social ventures.

Through the project, students will enhance and apply their understanding of business strategies and processes that enhance sustainability and social impact.
