Undergraduate Applications Now Open for The Business of Social Innovation Online Program

October 31, 2013 at 1:02 pm Leave a comment

Portland State University students can now earn credit for being changemakers. Launching in January, 2014, The Business of Social Innovation is an online program in social entrepreneurship that can be completed in less than a year. Four sequential courses will teach participants the skills they need to design, launch and lead a successful social venture or program in any sector. For the first time, undergraduate students, graduate students, and community members will participate in the same classes, reflecting the real-world diversity and cross-sector collaboration that is a hallmark of successful social entrepreneurship.

Course content is based on materials previously developed and delivered for PSU’s MBA curriculum and global clients including Mercy Corps and The Rockefeller Foundation. Students will use tools such as Human-Centered Design and lean entrepreneurship to identify and understand pressing social or environmental problems, design innovative and practical solutions, and learn how to successfully implement and measure the impact of their approach.
