We’re excited to start teaching two courses soon on social entrepreneurship and social innovation as part of the executive-level NGO Management Program at Sagesse University in Lebanon. According to one of the program coordinators, Elie Khayat, the program at Sagesse is looking to strengthen elements of the NGO program that relate to business skills, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
Combining our work with the new and growing global Alliance for Social Entrepreneurship and this coming course at Sagesse University, we look forward to developing new materials, enhancing academic partnerships, and contributing to improved educational resources and opportunities in this field in Lebanon and the WANA (West Asia/North Africa) region. If you’re looking right now, a good place to start is where the Alliance is already starting to post up resources related to social entrepreneurship education.
The courses will be short and intense… only 4 days each, 3 hours each day, and we want them to have the maximum impact possible for the participating students. If you have suggestions of content we should use, activities we could do, or anything else, please let us know! (send an email to dmn (at) altcity.me).
Please keep checking back … we’ll be adding more information, resources, updates, and links as the courses kick off!
