Find the answer to these and many more questions in the free FutureLearn online course «Entrepreneurship in Nonprofits» starting on April 1st 2019. Over the course of five weeks, Prof. Dr. Georg von Schnurbein – director at the Center for Philanthropy Studies of the University of Basel – and various academic and field experts will take you on a journey through the fascinating world of social innovation.  

The course is directed at anyone interested in the topics of social entrepreneurship as well as at dedicated people who want to work in the nonprofit sector – or are already active in this area. It provides you with the economic tools and knowledge that you need to become a social entrepreneur. And it asks you to take a thorough look at your own practice by critically reflecting the learnings with respect to your existing or envisioned social enterprise.
