Building A Curriculum For Social Business Entrepreneurship


  • DARABAN Bogdan

    (Shenandoah University, Winchester, VA, USA)


In recent years social entrepreneurship has been emerging as a viable alternative to government policies for addressing some of the society’s most pressing issues. Academics have also started to take note but only a small number of institutions of higher education offer educational opportunities for students who want to become social entrepreneurs. In this paper I show how business schools are well equipped to offer a coherent curriculum for social business entrepreneurs at a relatively low marginal cost and argue that a business-heavy curriculum is appropriate.
