ENTRP 520 - Social Entrepreneurship

Credits: 3

Social entrepreneurship is one of the fastest growing disciplines to emerge in management and is increasingly getting recognition as an important policy strategy at the national level. It is concerned with how to engage the talents and tools of professional entrepreneurship to address critical social needs both within and beyond the market. Social entrepreneurship is situated within a framework of social institutions, organizations, and entrepreneurial change in response to human and citizen rights and needs. The relevant social institutions include government, the market, education, philanthropy, and the family. Organizations may be for profit or non-profit, but all organizations, regardless of their legal structure, are seen to have a social purpose. Several non-market venues for sustainable social change will be examined in addition to the traditional delivery of goods and services through the market. The course provides a number of crucial tools and resources that may better orient and equip the prospective social entrepreneur to identify and act on opportunities.
