Topic Description / Additional Information

Social Enterprise is a rapidly growing field/discipline which employs entrepreneurial skills to craft innovative responses to social needs. This course explores current trends which are creating space for innovation and opportunities for individuals with management skills and a commitment to social justice to drive positive and large scale social change. We will explore the major opportunities and challenges presented by social enterprise through examining a variety of models ranging from social purpose business to nonprofits launching and running revenue generating enterprises. We will look at both domestic and international examples.

This course will be beneficial for students who aim to be involved in the social sector (both in the international and domestic context) as nonprofit managers, service providers, business leaders, consultants, board members, philanthropists, foundation leaders, or social entrepreneurs.
