MGMT 333 - Social Entrepreneurship

(3 credits)
Social entrepreneurs integrate the knowledge and skills used in business with a passion and commitment to having a meaningful and sustainable social impact. The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the history, theory and emerging activities of social entrepreneurship around the world and make clear connections to our Franciscan goals and values. The intent of social entrepreneurship is to create project teams or new ventures to apply their passion to enriching the lives of people who are impoverished, sick, or disenfranchised. The most successful ventures find creative ways to empower the disadvantaged help themselves, by building innovative and sustainable social enterprises that can be scaled to achieve significant social change. Subtopics such as sustainability, impact and performance, innovation and change, and social entrepreneurship leadership are woven into the course. Spring.
