Who should attend

This programme is open to entrepreneurs and executives from companies or organisations involved in furthering the common good.

Candidates should hold a leadership role (CEO, founder, or senior management) for social entrepreneurial or impact business activities, generally operating for at least three years.

About the course

Social entrepreneurship and impact business are part of a fast-growing movement that applies business tools to find sustainable solutions to neglected problems at all levels of society. Proponents of this approach develop and deploy innovative solutions to improve their communities and the world in which we live.

The INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme (ISEP), launched in 2006, is the global business education leader in this dynamic field. By integrating cutting-edge theory and practice for impact business with the deep academic knowledge of INSEAD faculty and expert practitioners, ISEP has demonstrated the potential to create social and economic value through collaboration among entrepreneurs, companies, investors and an engaged public sector. High-impact social ventures thrive when leaders share ideas, innovations and experiences.

ISEP creates a unique opportunity to focus on the business skills and frameworks that enable entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to build support among stakeholders and attract the investors needed to grow ventures to scale and maximise impact. Case studies, many developed by INSEAD faculty, provide a platform to analyse the uniquely complex issues and challenges faced by impact business leaders.

ISEP also delivers value over the long term. The network of graduates, numbering more than 700 in over 80 countries, is a dynamic community of impact business, sustainability and social enterprise leaders. Ongoing exchange, through online collaboration, regular meetings and support, serves as a foundation for further research and understanding of the field, which benefits all ISEP participants – past, present and future.
