This course introduces students to the field of social entrepreneurship in a global perspective, focusing on communication and leadership. Involves teamwork, communication technologies, and case studies of organizations and partnerships that make a difference. Grading: A-F only. Prerequisite: SISU-206  and SISU-240 .
