SCWK 8883 Creating and Sustaining Social Enterprises (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course has the dual goals of understanding the conceptual characteristics of “social enterprise” and the more practical objective of knowing how to create, implement, and sustain a program based on social enterprise principles. These goals are achieved through examining how social enterprise fits with important values, learning key models and considerations, and by creating a complete business plan for an actual social enterprise initiative. Students work in teams gathering essential information, formulating strategy, develop analytic tools, and create financial documents that provide a road map for a new revenue oriented program or service.
