In light of the major social and economic issues around the world, the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) has established a new degree which will empower students to effect change at the local and global levels -- the Master of Arts in Social Entrepreneurship and Change. With a course curriculum that builds business, management, and leadership proficiency, the 40-unit master of arts in social entrepreneurship and change will encourage students to explore the root causes of pressing problems affecting individuals, communities, and nations, and develop models for sustainable solutions.
The goal of Academies for Social Entrepreneurship is to enable charitable organizations to attract growth capital so that they can expand their programming and increase their revenue from earned, rather than donated income. ASE training, mentoring and business competitions focus on equipping not-for-profit executives with the skills they need to build high performing, earned income ventures. Since 2006, ASE’s programs have expanded capacity in hundreds of organizations, catalyzing tens of thousands of dollars in new revenue. .
