STGY 640 Social Entrepreneurship (2)

This course explores the role of the social entrepreneur in positively impacting socially responsible organizations that are concerned with improving economic, educational, healthcare, and cultural institutions. This course also provides the opportunity to apply the business knowledge and skills acquired in previous core courses in an integrative fashion while emphasizing the development of values-centered leadership skills. Students complete a Social Entrepreneurship Project that is a consulting report in the form of business plans, marketing plans, organizational development recommendations, and financial reports. Students learn to integrate knowledge from all functional areas of business and to apply those skills to complex business problems arising out of changing technology, competitive market conditions, social changes, and governmental actions. The methodology used includes the Social Entrepreneurship Project reports as well as an analysis of project management skills demonstrated by the student teams while working with social enterprises.
