Business for global good

The Social Enterprise Institute (SEI) at Northeastern University is the hub for social entrepreneurship and social innovation housed in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. With a focus on active student engagement in global and local communities, we believe we are building the next generation of global leaders addressing difficult social problems through business-driven solutions.


Behind great causes are great people

To build something truly different, one needs to work in a truly different way. The SEI faculty and students work together through every stage of our projects. It is a partnership that makes social innovation possible, and it is exactly how the field study program was created. With its hands-on experience, group work atmosphere, and ambitious mission, it’s a revolution in the way social business and microfinance is learned.
