HOD’s Desk


Social Entrepreneurship Department came up in Madras School of Social Work to address the emerging need of the subject in the society. Social Entrepreneurship has created wide interest among the young students who are interested in developing entrepreneurial skills and work towards alternative socio-economic models of development. It is one of the few places in India to offer a full- fledged master’s course on Social Entrepreneurship.

The contents of the course introduces the students with subjects relating to management, finance, accounting, social perspectives, economics, gender and also engages them with theoretical understanding of funding strategies, leadership , innovation along with product and project management. The wholesome classroom knowledge is complemented with deep rooted field practices through field work, summer internship, workshops, conferences, research component and social entrepreneurship project.

The students are trained to become social entrepreneurs who can start and manage their own ventures, hierarchical managers in social entrepreneurial organisations, social marketing professionals in research and government based organisations and executives in civil society as well as business organisations.
