This course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply their cumulative learning, and build practical business and leadership capabilities within a social entrepreneurship context. Social entrepreneurs use business thinking to develop operating models aimed at creating positive social outcomes to reach people in need. The course is taught through student engagement with a genuine social entrepreneurship project, supported by both online modules and face-to-face workshops.

Each practicum experience will be different depending on the particular project on which each student will work. Assessment tasks are designed to provide a consulting style framework to both create value for the social entrepreneurship project, and to enable students to demonstrate their ability to apply and synthesise social entrepreneurship concepts. Assessments include project scope setting, a project presentation, a final project report and a personal and professional development report.

The course is the capstone course for the Master of Commerce Global Sustainability and Social Enterprise specialisation. It is also an alternative capstone practicum course for other MCom and MCom (Ext) specialisations. This course may also be taken as a free elective in other Master of Commerce and Master of Commerce (Ext) specialisations and as an elective in the Master of Professional Accounting (Ext) program. Please refer to specialisation Handbook entries.  

The course is offered every term as well as in intensive mode in the Summer session.
