Apply Business Skills to Better Society in the Online Social Entrepreneurship Degree Curriculum
The course work that makes up the online social entrepreneurship degree curriculum is structured to give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply business discipline toward addressing challenging social problems. This includes providing a working knowledge of the following key components of social entrepreneurship:
- Classic and contemporary theories on leadership, management, governance and organizational effectiveness of nonprofit organizations.
- The values, issues, models and policy underlying the theory and practice of community economic development.
- The principles and concepts of social economics and policy, including supply and demand, national income, and international trade.
- The range of social and economic challenges confronted by residents of underserved and marginalized communities.
- The financial structures of nonprofits, NGOs, socially responsible corporations and governmental agencies.
- Contemporary political, social, economic and administrative realities involved in public administration at the local, state, national and international levels.
Classes are offered online throughout the year as part of the social entrepreneurship degree curriculum. Enroll full time or part time and build a schedule that’s convenient for you. Because classes are small, you will get to learn in a dynamic, interactive environment that allows you to get to know and engage your professors and classmates.
