Due to a change in the academic calendar, this program will not be offered in Spring 2021.
Sales for Social Impact (BUS-M 360) is a 3 credit hour course which includes an on-site international consulting project over Spring Break. The course is multidisciplinary, for students from all majors, and is focused on collaboration to develop sustainable solutions and business models for challenging global social issues, with support from 3M Corporation.
In addition to exploring the new entrepreneurial environment of the country, students will serve as consultants for a small local business to improve the marketing of its operations, so that it will become a sustainable business enterprise. All students in the course will travel together to the host country over Spring Break, where they will meet with their assigned entrepreneurs in order to better understand the market and the existing sales organization and process. The project will include meetings with community members, customers, competitors, and stakeholders.
The on-site consulting project abroad is an academic, service-learning component of the overall course grade. Students will be expected to behave and dress in a professional manner throughout the on-site project. Participation and conduct will be part of the course grade.
This course is open to all majors. Note that it may be used as an elective toward the following majors and co-majors: Marketing, Professional Sales, Entrepreneurship and Corporate Innovation, Sustainable Business, and International Business.
The course does not apply to the World Language and Cultures requirement nor the sophomore Global Foundation Core. This course is open to admitted Kelley students with sophomore status or higher. Enrollment is typically limited to 20 students. Students currently on disciplinary probation are not eligible.
