the programme

social innovation and social entrepreneurship

Being socially innovative and running a social enterprise are distinctly different although these terms are often used interchangeably when discussing organisations and ventures that pursue social objectives. This module then, will clarify the distinctiveness of each term and the qualities that go into making them distinct.

This module builds on the previous two modules by focusing on ‘social innovations’ as the best construct for understanding – and producing – lasting social change. The methods used to generate and grow social innovations around the world will be explored and the social-cultural-political context within which they are generated and grown analysed.
