Now more than ever, entrepreneurial leaders and business students need to better understand the changing role of business in today's society. This offering provides resources, networks, skills, and knowledge within the MBA program, allowing our graduates to be relevant, responsive, and proactive to these changes.
In 2017, the Graduate School launched the Business and Social Innovation Intensity Track for MBAs focused on developing the mindset, skills, and competencies needed to create economic and social value simultaneously. This Intensity Track begins to connect students to expanded resources and networks that are valuable in leading social value creation, whether inside a business or in any other domain.
"We are thrilled to offer the Business and Social Innovation Intensity Track designation in our MBA program," says Cheryl Kiser, executive director of the Institute for Social Innovation. "We designed this track for our students to extend their learning beyond the classroom and gain real-world experience in how social impact and innovation are created."
The Business and Social Innovation Intensity Track will emphasize the UN Global Goals as a framework for sustainable economic and social value creation.
