The Social Enterprise Institute challenges its students to not only study impact investing, an emergent field within social entrepreneurship, but to apply the strategy to global poverty in ENTR2210: Social Impact Investing — Connecting Compassion and Capital and ENTR4506: Advanced Topics in Social Entrepreneurship in Developing Countries.
In these classes, our students analyze social enterprises driving innovative solutions to poverty and are able to invest in high-performing organizations through the generosity of our supporters.
