We develop the next generation of principled social enterprise leaders through hands-on education, exposure and experience delivered through coursework, Latin America travel modules, consulting projects, global feasibility studies, mentorship, fellowships, and student clubs / activities.
Our courses are designed to give students broad exposures to the issues and challenges that sit at the nexus of business and market activity and the need for meaningful societal and environmental impacts.
SE@G has long standing relationships with many organizations that we work with in Nicaragua and El Salvador. Through these connections, we have developed a series of travel modules for Evening MBA, MBA, and BBA students and Emory Alumni that expose Goizueta students and faculty to the challenges and opportunities of sustainable economic development in a very tangible global context. Trips range from 7 to 10 days and are offered annually.Read More
Global Feasibility Studies
SE@G's Global Feasibility Studies allow faculty and students to work with individuals and organizations committed to global development projects. In this program, we thoroughly analyze and make business cases for innovative and high-impact projects set in developing countries and regions. To execute these studies, SE@G provides financial support and then assembles a team of students based on a competitive application process. Past projects have focused on entrepreneurship acceleration in Latin America, ophthalmology clinic care in Honduras, large-scale recycling in Bolivia, and wine cluster development in Ethiopia.
SE@G has appointed two Professionals-in-Residence (Sam Moss and David Kyle) to provide guidance to students and alumni who are thinking about developing careers with long-term social impacts; about pursuing short-term job placements in the social enterprise sector; and about developing their own ideas for impact ventures.
Additionally the Take Five Mentoring Series connects students with nonprofit and social sector leaders. Five students join a leader for breakfast or lunch each month for mentoring focused discussions on careers, trends, and more.
Social Enterprise Fellows
Fellowships are offered to MBA, Evening MBA*, and BBA* students as recognition for enrolled students who demonstrate deep commitment to SE@G's work. Fellows have access to executive mentoring, opportunities to participate in SE@G fieldwork projects, a membership to Atlanta's Center for Civic Innovation, a stipend to attend a social enterprise-related conference and financial support if they choose to work for a social enterprise as a summer intern. Incoming MBA students can apply for the fellowship as part of the admissions process. *Other students are granted fellowships through faculty / staff nomination process during the Spring semester each year.
