Over the past decade, social entrepreneurship has emerged as a powerful way of meeting global human needs. It is a fast growing movement that uses the tools of business to create positive results for society at every level. By developing and scaling innovative solutions, social entrepreneurs improve our communities and the world in which we live. With three campuses in Europe (France), in Asia (Singapore) and in the Middle East (Abu Dhabi), a research centre in Israel and an office in New York, INSEAD extends the reach of its business education and research across three continents
The INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme (ISEP) brings INSEAD’s strength as a global business education leader to this dynamic field. The programme aims to combine theory and practice by balancing the deep academic
knowledge of the faculty with insights from experienced practitioners. It is designed to focus on the business skills and frameworks that will help entrepreneurs grow their social ventures and improve their effectiveness and impact.
The discussion of case studies developed by ISEP’s faculty provides a platform to analyse the complex issues and challenges that social entrepreneurs face.
In addition, ISEP continues to add value after the week-long programme. Graduates of this programme form a dynamic community of high-level practitioners that remains engaged through online collaboration, regular meetings and support. They
exchange of ideas, innovations and practical experiences and serve as the foundation for further research, analysis and understanding of the field.
Through the support of external sponsors and MBA and executive education alumni, INSEAD offers to graduates of ISEP the opportunity to benefit from specialised consulting and mentoring. As such, this programme is an entry point to a stimulatingcommunity that offers many opportunities for subsequent learning and development
