The focus of Social Enterprise @ Goizueta (SE@G) is that of applying business acumen and market-based solutions to achieve meaningful and enduring societal impacts. By actively working across the spectrum of for-profit, nonprofit and hybrid organizations, our faculty and students become participants in important conversations and debates that are taking place in business schools around the world.
- In our Research, we illuminate the factors that induce and impede the realization of societal impacts (i.e., poverty reduction or environmental sustainability) using markets and/or business models and acumen. Our research includes the Entrepreneurship Database program which collects rigorous longitudinal data from accelerator programs and entrepreneurs from around the world.
- In our Fieldwork and Outreach, we engage faculty and students in projects that deepen our understanding of organizations that strive to achieve meaningful societal impacts, while developing our ability to enhance their overall effectiveness.
- In our Teaching and Student Support activities, we expose students to the many ways that their business education can be applied to address a range of societal challenges.
