This Ivy League inspired pathway is designed in collaboration with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania for students interested in creating and leading business ventures. Social entrepreneurs are people or organizations that use economic and technological innovation to achieve social goals. They use entrepreneurial skills to create organizations that, instead of seeking profit, pursue a more just and humane society.
Students will be introduced to social entrepreneurship through case studies, key readings, and primary information resources. Students will become familiar with organizations and social entrepreneurs through service-learning projects, site visits, and will begin to develop skills demonstrated by successful social entrepreneurs, including team building and leadership, negotiation, and working in complex social and cultural environments.
