About the course

Social entrepreneurship offers the potential to shift our civil society into a different way of doing things. Within the context of COVID-19, this is becoming increasingly important.

Social entrepreneurs blend the lessons from business with the diversity and complexity of social values, and in the process pursue opportunities for change. They seek long term sustainability, while simultaneously combining the pursuits of purpose and profit. In the words of Bernard Shaw: "Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything".

The Gordon Institute of Business Science’s Entrepreneurship Development Academy will run the Social Entrepreneurship Programme (SEP) for the 12th year in 2021. The course takes excellence in business thinking and applies it to the social development space.

The SEP is a middle-management training programme, aimed at those who want to make a difference. The programme will be offered in a blended format, thus making it accessible to a broader audience.

  • Develop insights into the complex challenges of social change, financial sustainability and innovation.
