The course identifies unique opportunities for the sector, explore organizational and management issues specific to social enterprises, review the history of social enterprise structures, and critically review their impacts. We will also consider the value of the "entrepreneurial" approach, including attitudes towards risk tolerance, experimentation, and problem-solving.
