MGMT 8140 Social Entrepreneurship (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Creating and leading a sustainable social enterprise requires a strong customer orientation, the agility to adapt to external trends, a desire to build strategic partnerships, and a commitment to making measurable social impact. Students will evaluate both successful and struggling social enterprises, and look at many ways to innovate at different parts of the value chain, to balance mission and profits, to access alternative financing including social impact investors and crowdsourcing, and to design appropriate performance metrics. Students will develop pitches and write business plans for their own social enterprise ideas.
