Course introduction

How can you turn a strategy for making an impact into real, positive change? You need to be able to understand how social development practices have evolved and how recent innovations can be utilised.

This online course is designed for anyone looking to get into the nitty-gritty of contributing to real-world impact projects. Our Social Entrepreneurship and Impact Investing course, which is offered in partnership with the University of Richmond and UNC Charlotte, will show you how to evaluate which approaches are demonstrating positive results and impact.

You’ll be introduced to concepts such as behavioural science, systems innovation, human-centred design, impact investing and social entrepreneurship.
