ID 511 - Social Entrepreneurship in Health and the Environment
This course introduces students to the concept of social entrepreneurship, which entails developing and implementing innovative, effective, scalable and financially viable social products or services. Students will gain practice in thinking about public health problems in a solution oriented manner, and learning how to channel those ideas into a well-planned business case for an intervention (whether in the form of a project or organization). Examples of social entrepreneurship initiatives will be provided through weekly readings and guest speakers, and students will be required to read and discuss these in class.
