Please be aware, you must enroll as a full time student at The American College of Norway and that means that you must study 5 of our courses (Totaling 15 credit). We will communicate with you to discuss which of our other courses you would like to include.
This course will be shaped around a conversation about social entrepreneurship and the role social entrepreneurs play in creating positive social change in our rapidly evolving global community.
Governments and often large well-established NGOs are slow to adapt and are struggling to provide the necessary services that millions of marginalized and disadvantaged people desperately need.
And this is where social entrepreneurs can pick up the slack. Throughout this course students will be identifying social issues that they feel passionate about and learn how these issues might be rectified using social entrepreneurship. All students will create a business plan for a fictitious social venture that in some way addresses a social issue.
