The aim of the Social Enterprise Experience course is to provide students with the opportunity to gain an authentic learning experience overseas in the area of social entrepreneurship in a foreign location. In this course, students will work in teams and complete an applied project related to different areas of social entrepreneurship (e.g. microfinance, social innovation, corporate sustainability, education, philanthropy, ethical investment). By applying theory and knowledge into real life problems, through a range of collaborations with relevant industry and community partners as well as stakeholder organisations, students will develop employability skills relevant to their professional careers such as teamwork, cultural adaptability, resilience, communication, stakeholder engagement, creative problem solving, and critical thinking.

Students will be selected to enrol in the course following a competitive application process.
