MGMT 2139 Special Topics:Social Innovation&Entrepreneurship (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Are you moved by a particular social injustice? It could be homelessness on the streets of Boston. It could be famine in Africa. It could be wage inequality across our country. It could be one of hundreds of issues, but one that is meaningful to you. Social Impact and Entrepreneurship explores the innovative ways government agencies, nonprofit groups and for-profit organizations are addressing societal challenges. This course will focus on understanding the building blocks of a social venture -- starting with the mission and working through the operational plan, the financials and the evaluation criteria. Students, either individually or in small groups, will create a business plan for an enterprise, grounded in her/his passion for change in a given area. Multiple case studies will be used to illustrate various topics. Open to students from all majors.
