Social Entrepreneurship Practicum


Course substitutes for the “Social Entrepreneurship Practicum” requirement are anticipated and will be allowable if and only if the substitute emphasizes experiential learning that will result in the student gaining first-hand experience in the development, launch and/or growth of a social venture (i.e., a mission-driven business venture or a revenue-generating nonprofit) (ENTR 364   or ENTR 455  ).

Students seeking approval for a course substitute will be required to submit a request in writing to the certificate’s faculty director. The request should indicate the course being proposed as a substitute and address how course activities/project(s) can be expected to satisfy the criterion noted above.
