Business for Global Good

The Social Enterprise Institute (SEI) at Northeastern University is the hub for social entrepreneurship housed in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. Grounded in the belief that business can be a powerful tool in helping to alleviate poverty in the developing world by utilizing enterprise based solutions, we believe we are building the next generation of global business leaders.

Behind Great Causes are Great People

To build something truly different, you need to work in a truly different way. The SEI faculty, student leaders and volunteers work together through every stage of our projects. It’s a partnership that makes social innovation possible. And it’s 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 micro-finance is learned.
