Social entrepreneurship and impact investing are tools that use business to solve the world’s social problems. The two¬-day course, “Introduction to Social Enterprise and Impact Investing,” will outline for students how an industry that uses markets to address social problems developed, popularized, and turned into an industry. Using interactive case studies, students will learn how to think through the opportunities and challenges facing social ventures through the perspectives of both an investor and an entrepreneur. Students will also gain familiarity with the landscape of enterprises in emerging markets, as well as the active impact investors in the space.
