Students consult to social entrepreneurs in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility. Students design and execute a consulting project with a non-profit organization in order to resolve one or more concrete problems.
This project will provide insight into a number of issues relating to management, including entrepreneurship, the non-profit sector and interaction between market, governments and civil society and trends within the community. Students will also develop their consultancy skills while having the experience of working for a real organization as part of a team of consultants. Students will also make an active contribution to their client organization (and the community) in the form of doing actual research and making valuable recommendations.
