MBA Emphasis in Social Innovation

Social Innovation is a relatively new field focused on applying business skills and innovation capabilities to meet society’s unmet needs. Social innovators need the ability to work seamlessly across business, government, and non-profit organizations to integrate the skills and perspectives of each sector. Social innovation focuses on the processes of innovation, incorporating perspectives such as design thinking, systems thinking, and collaborative management.

This skills-oriented emphasis is designed for social-entrepreneurs, and for early to mid-career professionals working in businesses, social change organizations, and government agencies, to develop business skills to address social problems and opportunities.
