IÉSEG School of Management is running a new 10-day Social entrepreneurship MBA Challenge program for MBA students around the world. Running from the 1st to the 10th July, the event in Paris will combine academic courses (taught by experts at the School) and visits to a social enterprise(s)/NGO and will finish with a social entrepreneurship “challenge” for teams of MBA students.
The first days of the program will be dedicated to academic study; participants will study the different facets of social enterprises and social entrepreneurship. They will also take a short course in strategy and ethics in the context of social enterprises. Time in the classroom will be split with a visit to four companies/organizations (NGOs, social enterprises, incubator, NGO) in the Paris area.
At the end of courses and visits, teams of MBA students will asked to take part in a social entrepreneurship challenge, where they will be asked to use the knowledge they have gained.
Antoine DECOUVELAERE from IÉSEG’s Executive Education team explains : « The aim of this short program and Challenge is bring together MBA students from around the world so they can learn about and share information about social entrepreneurship. We also believe it will give them an opportunity to work with diverse international teams and therefore to develop their professional and personal networks”.
