Course Information

In today’s increasingly interdependent and rapidly changing world, understanding the transformations of the 21st century that are characterized by uneven development, accelerated globalization, economic uncertainty, entrenched and complex social problems requires an academic approach that is interdisciplinary and focused on both innovation and commercialisation.

The Programme aims:

  • to develop skills and leadership capability within organisations across all sectors engaged in social innovation, and
  • to develop a pipeline of investable social innovations which are also marketable

The taught programme is built of eight 20 credit modules which explore particular themes with regard to social innovation and its scaling and sustaining, and a 60 credit work based synthesis module which brings together multiple perspectives into a dissertation or project of the students’ choice specific to the application of social innovation. The whole programme is based on a social venture incubation programme which addresses not only the skills development of the students but also the development of a real social venture which will be both investable and marketable. To achieve this, there will be strong tutoring support supported by access to business support, mentoring, and online resources.
