Event Details

Professor: Joanne Lawrence

Course ID: 8993

Course description:
 

Despite trillions of dollars in development aid, the majority of the world’s population - more than 4 billion people at the so called ‘Bottom of the Pyramid’– still live on less than $2 a day. Why are the poor still poor, and why have so many been excluded as potential consumers and entrepreneurs? Does business ingenuity provide a more viable option than aid to solve the complex problem of poverty and reduce the greatest challenge of our time: growing income disparity?

This course introduces students to the concept of ‘socially-driven innovation” and the
potential of business to creatively and proactively address some of the world’s greatest societal challenges yet remain true to its mission as an economic entity. Topics include theories of change, design and systems thinking, social marketing and behavioral change communication, effective partnering and co-creating, and new business and finance models, such as multinationals’ ‘intrapreneurship’ efforts, social entrepreneurship, digitally-driven, socially-focused innovation, and the growing trend towards public/private partnerships.

NOTE: Alumni must attend all sessions.
