Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship

The Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship is a partnership between the Kelley School of Business and IU’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs. It offers full-time MBA and SPEA MPA students the opportunity to take courses in both schools in order to gain dual perspectives on the social and business problems facing society. The program prepares students to approach public needs with entrepreneurial practices and social purposes.
