[TC-I Call to Action]: Yale University's Global Social Entrepreneurship Course seeking Indian social enterprisesShital Shah
Once again, Yale University is holding its Global Social Entrepreneurship course during Fall 2010, and is looking for Indian social enterprises to participate.
A core goal of the program is to link teams of Yale students with mission-driven social entrepreneurs in India over a four-month long course designed to bring the students and social entrepreneurs together to address a specific management challenge the social enterprise is facing. Key attributes of the course are:
· Five teams of 4 to 6 students (advised by India-based Morgan Stanley staff) will work with each social enterprise on a project vital to its continued organizational development;
· The selected social entrepreneurs will visit the Yale campus for an intensive week of faculty and student interaction in September/October 2010;
· Student team members will visit India to get a more practical view of the challenge and to meet each social enterprise’s management, staff and trustees;
· A two-day conference will be held in India in January 2011 at which social enterprise representatives, students, faculty, Morgan Stanley staff, and invited guests will hear and discuss the plans and explore issues of broader import to social entrepreneurs.
Yale is actively seeking applications from social enterprises in India interested in collaborating during next fall’s course. A one-page description of the program and an application form (due no later than March 10, 2010).
