MGT459 Topics in Innovation: Social Entrepreneurship

Professor: Ayelet Gneezy

Day: Tuesdays

Time: 9:30 AM

 

Course Overview & Objectives

In less than a generation, we have witnessed a tectonic shift in the way people think about, and work toward, social change. Innovative change-makers are those who test and implement new solutions to entrenched social, economic, and environmental problems. This course is designed for students who are interested in understanding and participating in social entrepreneurship, whether they pursue careers in the nonprofit, for profit or public sectors.

 

Is there a conflict between looking after shareholders and looking after stakeholders more generally? Does a company have responsibilities to society over and above those to its shareholders? Is it ethical to outsource production to countries where working conditions are vastly inferior to those in the US? Can corporations and business methods contribute to the solution of social and environmental problems?

 

These pressing issues are of concern to many corporations and leaders in the political and non-governmental worlds.

This is an interactive, discussion-based and case-based course that looks at examples of companies that have succeeded in doing well (financially) and doing good (for society). We will also hear from practitioners who are struggling with these issues.

 

The picture that emerges from the course is that “doing well” (financially) and “doing good” (for society and other stakeholders) can be compatible. There are many examples of companies that do both–meet demanding ethical standards, while being amongst the most profitable in their industries. In this course we will try to understand how this can be achieved, and apply critical thinking to this domain.

Learning about entrepreneurs for social change is not merely about reading case studies, learning about problems and coming up with great ideas. By committing to take this class, you will participate in a process of deep reflection about where you come from, your current interests and your vision for the future. This is an invitation to develop your own roadmap for becoming an agent of change through entrepreneurship and business.
