Global MBA In Social
Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Public entrepreneurship is an alternative, inventive approach for leading change in public realms. This
course is designed for future private entrepreneurs and public leaders who want to build new ventures
operating in, or selling into, traditionally public domains. Throughout the last few years, we have seen
a wave of new public entrepreneurs start companies that eventually sell to government institutions, or
directly to citizens, and a growing interest in these companies by ventures funds and other investors.
