Programme Scope and Benefit:

The role of entrepreneurship in the economic growth and standard of living of any country is widely discussed and accepted. An entrepreneur not only works hard to build his/her own business and provide for his/her family but also does a whole lot more for his/her local community, state, region and the country. The role of a social entrepreneur, however, has further extension to its functional relevance where the entrepreneur attempts to directly address a gaping challenge in the society. The field of social entrepreneurship has continuously acquired wider space in discussion and practice in recent years as a complimentary arm to the State. The Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai (India), has been the pioneering institution in creating the subject knowledge and practicing the contours of social entrepreneurship in the country.

The Centre for Social Entrepreneurship hereby presents an Online Programme in Social Entrepreneurship (OPSE) where participants from different disciplines and sectors would learn about social entrepreneurship and be sensitised to consider the consequences of their decisions on the social and environmental concerns. This programme will address issues such as inclusive growth, social security and carbon footprints to create lasting impact on the decision dynamics of the social entrepreneurs and professional managers.
