    Social entrepreneurship is an emerging field that involves the development of new approaches and business models to solve society’s toughest challenges. Social enterprises focus on the “triple bottom line,” prioritizing social impact and profits. Successful social entrepreneurs demonstrate creativity, passion, and a solid understanding of business operations and management principles. 

    This course offers you the opportunity to learn what social enterprise is and provides you with foundational skills to launch one of your own. Through case studies, lectures, and classroom dialogue, develop a deeper understanding of the social entrepreneurship sector and the skills necessary to fund, launch, and administer such a venture.
