Social Entrepreneurship

Social Entrepreneurship is defined as the formation of a new venture that combines social goals and for-profit activity to address social needs through novel solutions. Social entrepreneurs are leaders in that to be effective, they have to identify social problems, work closely with key stakeholders in identifying solutions to those problems, offer a vision for change, communicate clearly and persuasively to others, negotiate for resources from both public and private concerns, involve people in the solutions to problems, and be creative, passionate, and persistent in how they work through various obstacles to progress. It is the purpose of the School of Business Social Entrepreneurship minor to provide students with the theoretical underpinnings of leadership, entrepreneurship, and social innovation. This minor will interest those students for whom the Great Problem Seminar and/or IQP have been an eye-opening experience and who aspire to change the world — or some part of it.

The minor requires the completion of two units of coursework as outlined below.
