Social Enterprise and Public Policy
Social enterprises boost the economic landscape, reshape global economies and create benefits that are important to society in general. This course dives into the role of public policy within the social enterprise initiatives to develop effective methods. The students will understand how different forms of organisational action (e.g. public policy vs. social enterprise) act in terms of creating social value and contribute to the understanding their similarities and differences as well as the distinctive frameworks within which they unfold. The course discusses relevant topics namely legal funding, government policies, third-sector enterprises, and procurement procedures. This course is ideal for academics, students, government officials, business managers, and researchers that are interested in staying up to date with the latest advancements in the field of social enterprises.
