The purpose of the Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise specialization is to prepare students to design, build, and manage entrepreneurial ventures that impact social and environmental challenges. A key differentiator is the fully integrated venture creation process, during which students form teams and design ventures throughout the program. This process is woven throughout multiple courses and all three semesters, including a 40-60 day summer practicum. It is a cohort-based program with 25-30 students from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
