The major in social entrepreneurship is designed for students interested in using their business skills in the entrepreneurial pursuit of social impact. The core BSBA program provides a strong foundation for any student looking to become a successful business leader and create social change.
Social entrepreneurship is a form of leadership that permanently changes the way problems are addressed on a global and local scale. Social entrepreneurs take innovative and creative approaches to develop sustainable solutions to a range of problems from poverty, malnutrition, and homelessness and to lack of access to education, health care and dignified work. These methods allow social entrepreneurs to develop and implement pattern-breaking solutions for previously intractable social problems in ways that are sustainable and have a long-term orientation.
