NPMG 6880 - Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation: A Global Perspective


(5 cr.) This course is designed for individuals who have a passion for improving conditions for people and the environment, whether locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally. Social entrepreneurship and innovation are vehicles for moving beyond social change to widespread social transformation at the root cause and systemic levels of the biggest and most intransigent problems of the world. Students learn to become social innovators as they build citizen and community engagement and develop partnerships and multi-sector coalitions among social justice organizations, nonprofits, businesses, and public agencies. This course is intended to help students identify ways in which this concept, processes, and skills can be integrated into their work to increase their contribution to creating a just, sustainable, and peaceful world.

Students will learn the process, find practical applications, and design a plan to (a) solve or find practical solutions to social and environmental problems; (b) innovate by finding a new product, service, or approach to a social problem; (c) create social value; and (d) transform or revolutionize dysfunctional systems or industries. Additionally, they will learn to use innovative, sustainable, scalable, and measurable approaches, apply social entrepreneurship and innovation skills, and anchor competencies.
