Our world is complex: the social, environmental and economic needs of our planet and people have never been greater. But business cannot afford to take a back seat to these needs. The business winners of the future will be companies that can use sustainability as an opportunity instead of a barrier.

Using real companies as examples, understand the foundations of businesses that have true social impact. Working in teams, build a model business and gain knowledge of strategy, marketing and operations. At the end of the course, you’ll have an opportunity to pitch your social enterprise idea to the class.

Who should take this course?
This course is ideal if you’re interested in business and are committed to making a difference.
