MBAG 8664 - Social Entrepreneurship
The goal of social entrepreneurship is to enhance the well-being of a disadvantaged target group within society or society as a whole using a hybrid entrepreneurship mode. Amongst other things, the hybrid model includes some of the aspects of commercial entrepreneurship such as an entrepreneurial orientation, opportunity recognition and creating a venture. This course focuses on what it means to be a social entrepreneur (SE). We examine how SEs create a social venture and accomplish their social missions while maintaining financial viability. In essence, we are trying to answer the question “what makes a social entrepreneur successful?” Though this question may seem straight forward, it is not as easy as it seems. As one example, how do we measure success in a way that reflects the complexities of multiple stakeholders and their needs? The course will emphasize immersive learning and will include projects and discussions with social entrepreneurs.
