Social enterprises are businesses that have a social or environmental mission, and they are part of a cultural phenomenon that is gaining momentum. This course will teach you about the social enterprise landscape both in the UK and worldwide. Social enterprises can take many legal forms that we will cover, as well as providing you with an overview of different business models adopted by extremely diverse organisations.
You will learn how to set up and manage a social enterprise, as well as how to measure and communicate your impact to stakeholders. For businesses with less ethical drive we will make a business case for increasing social impact as a potential competitive advantage. You will also learn about the specific challenges faced by social entrepreneurs and tips to balance a ‘triple bottom line’ act (Profit-People-Planet).
