Description: Millennials are no longer satisfied with pursuing a career that allows them just to make money. They are driven as well to make a difference in the lives of others, and live a richer life themselves. This practical course will study social entrepreneurship and its ability to create social change by applying business principles and earned income strategies; it will explore the elements needed to start and grow a social enterprise, using as a real-life example the organization founded and led by the lecturer; and it will allow students to explore areas they feel passionate about and utilize the knowledge gained through their MBA to draft a business plan for a plausible social enterprise. Guest speakers for this course include nationally-renowned major philanthropists, who will share their view of what it takes to be a successful social entrepreneur. Repeatable for Credit.
