This is a tailor-made program for Koç University students designed in cooperation with Universitas Airlangga in Indonesia.
This program discusses social entrepreneurship (sociopreneurship) and sociopreneur as an alternative that can be used to solve economic and social problems globally. The main goal of this program is to return to society which means that the profit is meant for the welfare of society. This concept emerges as the result of the economic globalization that harms some people, especially from the lower class. Without putting aside the economic purpose, sociopreneurs focus more on what they can give to the society. In practical level, social entrepreneurs are required to recognize the problems faced by the community and at the same time understand the broader context of issues through different disciplines and theoretical perspectives. This kind of knowledge will certainly help the sociopreneurs to develop innovative solutions that can help the community not to be crushed by globalization.
This program offers a complete package of sociopreneurship learning. The participants will be given the theories and learning methods before they develop their ideas and implement them directly to the community. The participants will obtain in-class courses, workshops, on-site visits, field trips, and cultural tour to understand sociopreneurship comprehensively.
