Principles and Practices in Social Enterprise, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The quest to address intractable social problems, innovate in the social sector, create impact, and develop new revenue streams for nonprofits to cultivate resources has led to blurred lines between government, for-profit and nonprofit sectors. In this course students explore the why, what, and how of social enterprises, including developing a theory of change, and application of design thinking tools that can support market- or sector-level impact. Students will explore the shared characteristics of effective social enterprises such as business models, performance metrics, strong leadership and partnerships. All course content is examined though a nonprofit lens with insights into benefits and risks of social enterprise strategies and tools applicable to diverse organizations.
