Social Enterprise Program (SEP)

Social Enterprise Program

The Green Business Club is part of the Social Enterprise Program (SEP) at Columbia Business School, which provides a framework for students to think in broader terms about their role in business and society, and prepares them with the knowledge and experience to respond to the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

The Program supports a broad range of activities that help Columbia Business School students embrace the breadth and depth of social enterprise. Students develop a perspective on how to apply business skills to social enterprise endeavors and align personal and professional values in careers that result in social benefits to a broader community. The curriculum explores social enterprise within four focus areas: Public and Nonprofit Management; International Development and Emerging Markets; Social Entrepreneurship; and Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability.

The Program offers elective courses; career support through the Summer Fellowship Program and Loan Assistance for graduates; and experiential learning opportunities including the Nonprofit Board Leadership Program and the International Development Consulting Projects Travel Fund.

In addition to the Green Business Club, SEP also serves as an umbrella for a range of student clubs addressing social and environmental issues at alumni and speaker events and at the Annual Social Enterprise Conference in October.
