Course description

This course is for those students looking for practically-based, ground-up business learning that focuses on creating both social and financial value at the same time. Students are directed as to how to create social entrepreneurship opportunities of their passion and attract other students to form project teams. An overarching theme is teaching students how to integrate a social impact model with a business model. Students are taught a discovery-driven approach to finding the right social entrepreneurship opportunity. Students must devise innovative solutions to their social opportunity and learn how to design it in a way that could transition into a viable and sustainable, financially self-sufficient business. Assessment in the course is based on the demonstration of course-taught practical skills, ability to make a financially sustainable social impact, and reflective learning-from-experience skills.
