USC Marshall to Offer Degree in Social Entrepreneurship [#permalink] New post 24 Feb 2014, 12:38
Expert's post
The USC Marshall School of Business has announced a new Master of Science in Social Entrepreneurship (MSSE) offered through the Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab, further expanding the opportunities for students interested in careers with social impact.

Previously known as the Society and Business Lab and recently named with a gift from the Brittingham Family Foundation, the Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab was developed to study and teach about social entrepreneurship — the creation of a new kind of hybrid business model for organizations that balances a revenue mission with an equally important social, environmental or health mission.

Traditionally, students looking to make a social impact in such areas as health, poverty alleviation, environment, education, and government pursued advance degrees in public policy and social work.

The Master of Science in Social Entrepreneurship gives students the opportunity to learn business and entrepreneurship skills within a framework of achieving a social mission. The MSSE requires 26 units and can be completed in one year (full-time) or two or more years (part-time).

All courses are held in the evening and weekends and focus entirely on the business aspects of social entrepreneurship. Requirements include: Cases in New Venture Management, Cases in Feasibility Analysis, Investing in Impact Ventures, and Marketing Management. Students can choose from electives such as Environmental Sustainability and Competitive Advantage or Designing High Performance Organizations.

The program also includes a for-credit practical capstone project in which students will develop a business plan for a new social enterprise.

“The mission of the Lab always has been ambitious, supporting the next generation of leaders looking to devote their careers to finding and implementing innovative solutions to global challenges related to poverty, homelessness, education and health care. We are providing students across USC with practical business tools to make a difference in these areas,” says Adlai Wertman, founding director of the Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab and a professor with joint appointments at USC Marshall and USC’s Rossier School of Education.

“The new Master of Science in Social Entrepreneurship will further our goals by offering advanced study in business, entrepreneurship and social impact — the nuanced knowledge that students need to create, grow and manage successful social enterprises.”

James G. Ellis, dean of the Marshall School of Business, says the new degree comes in response to growing demand from students who want to make an impact in business and society, explaining that “This program has the potential to transform the field by uniquely preparing aspiring social entrepreneurs.”
