As your first year draws to a close, you’ll take an important professional step and declare a concentration in at least one of our principal fields of business. If ethical and social issues in business interest you, the concentration in social innovation and entrepreneurship will prepare you to launch a new venture or project focused on creating social change.
You’ll consider ethical and social issues in creating, building, managing, and growing small, medium, and large businesses. The concentration includes a structured community engagement and service requirement, either through participation in international fieldwork (Dialogues, Alternative Spring Break, or other embedded travel programs) and/or local community service programs. You’ll have the opportunity to develop specific skill sets in entrepreneurial thinking and critical analysis, creative problem solving, professional communications (writing and presentations), working in diverse and multicultural teams, and interdisciplinary research and data analysis.
